Snapshots of America's Families II is the Urban Institute's first look at the well-being of children and adults through the lens of the 1999 National Survey of America's Families (NSAF). Snapshots II presents a picture of how the experiences of American families have changed in the first few years following federal welfare reform and other major policy changes. This new information will broaden the nation's understanding of the experience of low-income families and the challenges they face. Snapshots II offers national and state-specific portraits of family well-being that can inform future debates on welfare, health care, and the social safety net in America.
