Families on TANF in Illinois: Employment Assets and Liabilities


This report utilizes survey and administrative data to examine the personal characteristics and situations, potential challenges for employment, compensating strengths and resources, and employment outcomes of TANF recipients in Illinois. Topics examined include physical and mental health, disability, child care, domestic violence, substance abuse, criminal record, transportation, education and skills, and employment and earnings. The study's specially-designed survey instrument also was used for ASPE-funded studies of the TANF caseload in Colorado, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Missouri, and South Carolina, which allows comparison of data from a total of six surveys.
