Blum, Barbara B.; Berrey, Ellen C.

Research findings are providing increasingly valuable information about the effects of welfare changes on families receiving public assistance. This working paper outlines past and current research activities related to the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA), and describes the proliferation of research reports scheduled for publication over the next several years. Most importantly, it identifies questions and issues still to be addressed.
