Notes: The survey data have been weighted to be representative of all single-parent TANF recipients in Illinois. Survey item nonresponse may cause the sample sizes for specific variables to be smaller than those shown. Rounding may cause percentages to sum to something other than 100. We conducted two-tailed t-tests (for continuous variables) and chi-square tests (for categorical variables) for differences between currently and previously employed case heads.
a Based on reported household income for month prior to the survey.
b Poverty threshold level for 2001 as established by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. The analysis of monthly household income relative to the poverty level excludes food stamps. Income from food stamps is included in the monthly household income figures presented.
