Notes:

  • N/A: Data not available.
  • The data were compiled from a December end-of-month extract of the Welfare Management System for each of the years shown. The total caseload at the end of the month is somewhat lower than the total number of children who received public assistance during the month because some families receiving assistance during the month may leave assistance before the end of the month.
  • Prior to and including 1997, children were counted as receiving public assistance if they received aid under either the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program or the Home Relief (HR) Program. After 1997, children were counted as receiving public assistance if they received aid under either the State's Family Assistance (FA) Program or the State's Safety Net (SN) Program.
  • To calculate rates of participation, Census Bureau estimates of the total number of children in each county for the respective year were used.
  • Percentages reflect children/youth ages birth-17 years receiving public assistance.
  • * Rates are not stable when the number is less than 20.
