Summary

This report, Part I of a three-part study, provides information on the demographic and program characteristics of families who received assistance payments in May, 1975, under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program, including the unemployed father segment. The data were derived from a sample survey which included all states and jurisdictions except Guam. The minimum sample required from each state was one-half of one percent, but states were given the option to submit larger samples computed by specified formulas. Twenty-nine states provided samples large enough for reliable state data to be included in the tabulations. Data are also shown for all 10 Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) regions. Sample data are inflated to represent all families receiving money payments during the study month. Therefore, the data are subject to sampling variability and, as in all surveys, the figures are subject to errors of response. A brief overview of AFDC in 1975 and changes since 1973 prefaces the 47 tables included in the report. Major categories of data are Assistance History, AFDC Family and Household, Children in the AFDC Family, Mothers of AFDC Children and Fathers of AFDC children. Appendices provide a glossary of selected terms and a discussion of sample design and of data accuracy. (Author/RH)
