a In order to be included in the numerator of the federal participation rate, adults in single-parent families must participate in federally countable activities for at least 30 hours per week, and at least 20 of those hours must be in core countable activities.В However, if the TANF recipient is a single teenager or married teen without a high school diploma, she may be included in the numerator if she maintains satisfactory high school attendance or is engaged in school directly related to work for at least 20 hours per week.В The majority of those in other countable activities only or in other countable and nonfederal activities are teenage recipients who are meeting their work requirements through school.В It is likely that the small number of cases in Utah that are in nonfederal activities only and appear here in the numerator represent a data reporting error.
