Will Welfare Reform Influence Marriage and Fertility? Early Evidence from the ABC Demonstration.
Fein, David J.
Evaluation and Program Planning, v24 n4 p427-44 Nov 2001
Presents evidence that policy changes in Delaware with regard to welfare reform did influence marriage and childbearing outcomes using survey data from the state's A Better Chance (ABC) program (n=1,547). After 18 months, the program had positive effects on marital cohabitation, but only a small impact on actual fertility, although it reduced the desire for more children among some subgroups. (SLD)
