Welfare Use Across Generations: How Important Are the Ties That Bind?
Rank, Mark R.; Cheng, Li-Chen
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v57 n3 p673-84 Aug 1995
Examined extent of intergenerational welfare use, strength of the association across generations, and reasons underlying such a dynamic, utilizing nationally representative data set of American households (n=13,017). Three-quarters of welfare recipients do not grow up in households that received welfare. Parent economic background, not welfare use per se, explains dynamic of intergenerational welfare use. (JBJ)
