Source: 2000-03 12-month follow-up survey of Welfare-to-Work enrollees.
Note 1: The survey data have been weighted to be representative of all WtW enrollees in the respective sites. 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.
Note 2: The measure of income used to determine poverty status is the same monthly measure reported in Exhibit B.20, except that income from from food stamps has been dropped to be consistent with the standard methodology for determining poverty status.
