The Responses of Single Mothers to Welfare and Child Care Subsidy Programs under the New Welfare Reform Act

A comprehensive analysis of single mothers' employment, child care payment, welfare, and child care subsidy decisions in the new welfare environment, using a data set from the National Survey of America's Families. The study models the effects of wages, child care prices, welfare program rules, subsidy benefit, and reimbursement rates on single mothers' welfare participation, use of child care subsidies, employment, and child care payment decisions. The goal of the research is to better understand the barriers that discourage mothers from participating in welfare and child care subsidy programs.
