Abstract

The purpose of this Note is to provide a model of the determinants of geographic AFDC differentials. In particular, the model developed and tested below hypothesizes a basically political determination of AFDC levels, a political determination principally involving an alignment of two socio-economic groups: (1) the very poor (actual AFDC recipients) and (2) those who are likely to become (although they are not currently actual) AFDC recipients.
