ASPE funded a round of competitive state and local research grants to study the characteristics and circumstances of individuals and families receiving TANF cash assistance. In this report, ASPE staff merged survey data from all six studies (Colorado, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, and South Carolina) and conducted a pooled analysis of employment liabilities and work among welfare recipients. The study focused on particular personal, family, and community-level liabilities that were most consistently related to work among TANF recipients in the six states.
