UI as a Safety Net for Former TANF Recipients. 3. TANF Leaver Samples for Analysis


Samples of TANF leavers were created from administrative data on recipients of public cash assistance in each of the states. The samples include those voluntarily leaving TANF for employment. Samples exclude those who fail to receive a TANF cash payment because of a sanction or other involuntary reason. Due to the periodicity of some administrative data needed for the study, the time unit for analysis is the calendar quarter. Because of the uneven time periods for data available across the states, a cohort approach was taken for defining samples for analysis. A total of eleven cohorts were examined across the four states. Definitions of the time frames for the analysis cohorts are listed in Appendix A.
