Social Assistance and the Employment Rate of Lone Mothers: An Analysis of Ontario's Live Experiment
The results of this study largely confirm the results of the author's previous study (Kapsalis, 1996). In fact, one of the two regression models estimated here produced an identical coefficient for the effect of social assistance benefits on the employment rate of lone mothers -- i.e. each $1,000 of an increase in social assistance benefit rates (expressed in 1995 dollars) was found to lead to 1.9 percentage point decline in the employment rate of lone mothers with young children.
