    [eng] How the Time Limit on the Lone-Parent Allowance (LPA) Influences the Actual Duration of the Benefit by Sabine Chaupain Does the fact that the LPA is paid for a legally limited time period (one year or just over three years depending on the age of the youngest child) influence the behaviour of the beneficiaries? This paper endeavours to answer this question. We use longitudinal data from the file of all LPA beneficiaries in Meurthe-et-Moselle to estimate the probability of ceasing to claim the LPA based on the theoretical remaining LPA period and various sociodemographic characteristics. This Logit model produces the expected results that most LPA beneficiaries continue to claim the benefit through to the end of its legal period. Nevertheless, many beneficiaries stop claiming the LPA prematurely [fre] L'influence de la clause de limite sur la durée effective de perception de l'allocation de parent isolé (API) par Sabine Chaupain Le fait que l' API soit versée pendant une durée légalement limitée (un an ou un peu plus de trois ans, selon l'âge du dernier enfant) exerce-t-il une influence sur le comportement des bénéficiaires ? C'est la question à laquelle on cherche à répondre dans cet article.À partir des données longitudinales du fichier exhaustif des bénéficiaires de l'API en Meurthe-et-Moselle, on estime la probabilité de quitter l'API en fonction de la durée théorique restante d' API et de diverses caractéristiques socio-démographiques.Les résultats de ce modèle Logit montrent, comme on pouvait s'y attendre, que la plupart des bénéficiaires de l'API perçoivent la prestation jusqu'à son terme légal ; toutefois, nombreuses sont celles qui sortent de l'API de manière anticipée.
