Sources. The data are from the 1984–1996 Current Population Survey Outgoing Rotation Group File (ORG) and the 1985–1997 March Current Population Survey (March CPS). Restrictions. See Table II for sample restrictions. Specications (2) and (6) are restricted to high school dropouts, (3) and (7) to high school graduates, and (4) and (8) to those with an education beyond high school. Controls. In addition to the variables in Table III (except for the interactions between year and any children), the following controls are included: indicators for state, year, calendar month, and calendar month interacted with any children (ORG), whether at least one, two, three, and four or more children are potentially AFDC eligible, whether at least one and at least two children are EITC eligible, and whether at least one child is under six, under three, under two, and under one. Last, continuous variables for the number of children under each age between one and nineteen are included. Notes. In all specications, the tax, welfare, and Medicaid variables are calculated using a joint hours/wage distribution, estimated separately for single women with and without children. Taxes and welfare are adjusted for state cost of living differences, and all dollar amounts are expressed in 1996 dollars. See Appendix 1 for specic indices used and other details.
