Child Well-Being and Welfare Module
With questions drawn from numerous national surveys, this module investigates the association between public assistance program participation and factors that may relate to child well-being (e.g., health care coverage, reliable child care, safe neighborhoods, and parental employment). In 1998 and 1999, this module was pilot-tested in a random sample of low-income families in Texas. Also, it included a special Medicaid sample obtained from administrative data in Texas and Minnesota.
