    [fre] L'allocation de parent isolé : une prestation sous influences. Une analyse de la durée de perception par Cédric Afsa L'allocation de parent isolé (API) est un minimum social versé pour une durée limitée, destiné aux femmes enceintes ou aux parents (des mères, en règle générale) qui se retrouvent seul(e)s à élever leurs enfants. L'analyse des données extraites des fichiers des caisses d'allocations familiales (CAF), organismes versant l'API, montre une grande dispersion des durées effectives de perception de l'allocation. D'ailleurs, environ 60 % des femmes sortent de l'API de manière anticipée, sans atteindre le terme légal. De plus, la durée de perception est elle-même sensible à divers facteurs socio-démographiques, individuels ou de contexte (comme le taux de chômage local). À cette variabilité s'ajoute une hétérogénéité des comportements, non observable sur les données à notre disposition, et que des études qualitatives ont mis en évidence. [eng] Lone-parent allowance: a sensitive benefit - an analysis of the payment period by Cédric Afsa The lone-parent allowance (API in French) is a minimum welfare benefit paid for a limited length of time. It is designed for pregnant women and parents (usually women) bringing up their children alone. An analysis of data taken from the files of the family allowance funds that pay the allowance shows a wide dispersion of actual lengths of time for which the benefit is paid. Approximately 60% of the women stop receiving the lone-parent allowance early, before they come to the legal end of the benefit. The length of time for which the benefit is paid is also itself sensitive to various socio-demographic, individual and environmental factors (such as the local unemployment rate). In addition to this variability, qualitative studies have found heterogeneous behaviour. However, we are unable to observe this phenomenon with the data at our disposal.
