dc.description.abstractThis study explored different sociodemographic characteristics and differences of employment and income between TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program) leavers who reached their lifetime limits and those who leave voluntarily. The study analyzed 656 TANF leavers from the 1999 and 2002 data of the National Survey of America's Family (NASF). Chi-square and t-test results indicated significant differences for age, health, EITC, childcare assistance, food stamp cut-off, employment, and income between the two groups. Multiple regression results showed that TANF leavers who reached their lifetime limits were less likely than voluntary leavers to be employed and to have high family income. Implications suggest the increase in adoption of exemption or extension policies for lifetime limits and providing follow-up services.
