This Fact Sheet highlights findings from IWPR’s forthcoming report, The Children Left Behind: America’s Poorest Children Left in Deeper Poverty and with Fewer Supports after Welfare Reform. The report utilizes 1996 and 2000 data from the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to examine the situations of low-income children in single-parent families both before and after welfare reform.
