Dramatic changes have occurred in the experience of low-income families, those who have been on welfare and those who haven't, since the mid-1990s. Assessing the New Federalism: Eight Years Later synthesizes much of what we've learned so far through intensive research, including a national survey of 40,000 American families, case studies, budgetary analysis, and a database of evolving state welfare rules. These findings offer a comprehensive picture of those leaving welfare and answer such questions as how many people recently off welfare are working and for how many hours.
