Interim Status Report on Research on the Outcomes of Welfare Reform. Deprivation or Insecurity


Figure A-8 shows that, for the most part, grantees are planning to use survey questions to query whether former recipients encounter severe problems in meeting basic needs.  These include issues associated with hunger, access to health care, use of emergency services, and housing problems (homelessness, lack of money to pay rent or living with relatives).  Two grantees, Georgia and Missouri, have access to administrative data on food pantries/food banks to examine deprivation issues.
