Estimating a Proposed Family Policy's Effects.
Meyer, Daniel R.; Kim, Rebecca Y.
Journal of Family Issues, v19 n5 p534-55 Sep 1998
Costs and the likely effects of assured child-support benefits on poverty and welfare participation are estimated under two scenarios: with and without incorporating the labor supply changes of custodial parents. Results indicate reductions in poverty rates, poverty gap, welfare caseloads, and expenditures. Changeable hours will increase costs. (Author/EMK)
