625. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)--Families and Recipients

[In thousands (147 represents 147,000). Average monthly families and recipients for calendar year, except 1999 for Jan.-Sept. period. Prior to TANF, the cash assistance program to families was called Aid to Dependent Children (1936-1962) and Aid to Families with Dependent Children (1962-1996). Under the new welfare law (Personal Resonsibility and Work Opportunity Reconcilation Act of 1996), the program became TANF. See text, this section. Includes Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands]
