Leslie A. Whitener, Bruce A. Weber and Greg Duncan ()

No 262262, Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Reports from United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service

Abstract: The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act dramatically altered the social safety net for poor Americans, including the 7 million people living in poverty in nonmetro areas. This issue brief examines evidence from recent research about rural-urban differences in welfare reform impacts on program participation, employment, earnings, and poverty and assesses how well welfare reform is working in rural areas.
