|Source: Administrative data on the TANF caseload maintained by the Illinois Department of Human Services.
Population: TANF cases in Illinois that: (1) were eligible for a cash grant in November 2001, (2) were classified by DHS as "single-parent," and (3) included the grantee (i.e., the person to whom the benefit was issued) as a member of the case (thus excluding "child-only" cases). Some of the cases (9 percent) in the study population did not receive a positive cash grant despite being classified as "eligible" for a cash grant (see Table C.4 for reasons).
a A sanction entails the loss of either the full cash grant or one-half of the grant, depending on the sanction level.
