This volume presents a comprehensive look at how welfare reforms enacted in 1996 are affecting caseloads, employment, earnings, and family well-being in rural areas.
"[T]his book is very accessible and thus can be read usefully by virtually anyone with an interest in welfare and poverty issues. Despite the fact that the title contains the word 'rural,' the reader can learn almost as much about these issues in urban areas as rural areas. Indeed, perhaps the best thing about the volume is the prominence it gives to geographical diversity and similarities in poverty and welfare problems." Journal of Regional Science
