The 2009 poverty update, with caseloads again.
1. The number of single-parent families in poverty has been more than twice the number receiving TANF since 2007. This chart updates and corrects a previous one, back in the welfare thread here:
- Families getting kicked off because of term limits
- States getting more strict or punitive because budgets are inadequate.
- Maybe the problems weren’t that bad after all, and the recession really did end last year.
