07/01/1997

In this section we describe the main explanatory variables that have been used in previous studies. We focus on the variables included in time-series and pooled models using aggregate data, which are the most relevant for the purposes of this project. We organize the section by the different types of variables -- demographic, economic, AFDC program, and other programs and laws.
