Leaving welfare in the winter of 1995-96 by Don Jaffray( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From October 1995 through January 1996 there was a decline in the General Welfare Assistance caseload in Hamilton- Wentworth, partly because of an increase in the number of claimants discontinuing their claim for benefits. This report presents results of a survey conducted to investigate why people left the General Welfare system and what circumstances they were experiencing after leaving. The survey methodology consisted of a combination of a review of case records of former claimants and a mail survey of a randomly selected sample of claimants who had discontinued benefits and no client contact had been made to determine why. In addition, basic demographic data on all 2,228 no- contact cases leaving the General Welfare system during the study period were collected and analyzed. Findings are presented in two parts: the first part covers demographics and the second employment status, educational status, housing type, and health
