AFDC, SSI, and Welfare Reform Aggressiveness: Caseload Reductions versus Caseload Shifting
Schmidt, Lucie; Sevak, Purvi
Journal of Human Resources, v39 n3 p792 Sum 2004
The effect of reforms of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) on caseloads of another program that is Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is examined. The results reveal that a decrease in caseloads in one program cannot be interpreted as an equal-sized decrease in the number of families receiving public assistance.
