Abstract:
Abstract: This report presents information on the dynamics of the food stamp caseload with the objective of understanding the dynamics of participation in assistance programs. The publication discusses such questions as: What events precipitate the need to apply for help? How long do people usually receive assistance? What events take them off the assistance rolls? Do they stay off, or do they quickly return? Short-run dynamics and long-run dynamics are both examined.
