Interim Status Report on Research on the Outcomes of Welfare Reform. Other Income Supports


Almost all grantees plan to study receipt of food stamps and child support, through administrative data, survey data, or a combination of both.  All states and counties also ask questions about resources from family members.  Other types of income supports specifically addressed in proposed surveys or proposed research plans include Supplemental Security Income (SSI), general assistance (GA), housing assistance, energy assistance, and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).  See Figure A-3 for the number of grantees examining the various income supports using either administrative or survey data.
