    These workers often earn low wages and have periodic interruptions in employment. This brief examines why welfare recipients are less likely to receive such benefits. Document date: October 02, Released online: October 02, Welfare reform begins its sixth year with a developing recession and rising unemployment. HOBBIE: My reaction is that in this current context where Congress has focused on temporary changes for economic stimulus purposes, we ought to focus on general revenue funding of emergency unemployment compensation programs and other programs to help workers who aren't otherwise going to get help from our normal programs. There are also several current programs that could be adjusted to improve their effectiveness as automatic stabilizers. Recessions are inevitable.

    And, in fact, I found that probably about 27 percent seemed very unlikely to meet this requirement of having a qualifying separation. Lagged employment status was used in all models to assure that it preceded the onset of cardiovascular disease and fell in the same time spell as the maximum unemployment benefits. As the rolls were dropping much more rapidly than the states anticipated, states felt some pressure to use the money or lose it, so they started reallocating it to lots of other needs. The information that Wayne put out also may be a little more hardened when he was comparing the situation in the last year, the increases in new claims versus a year ago, to what happened during the ''91 recession. Third, the government does not have effective tools to affect the stock market.

    From a total of 17, eligible participants, were excluded because of missing information on state of residence or because they lived in one of five states with less than 50 individuals in the sample Alaska, Hawaii, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Vermont. An innovative approach to address this bias is to exploit the large variation in unemployment policies across US states. The tax cuts being discussed by the Administration, however, are permanent and therefore raise deficits in both the short- and the long-term. It's interesting to look at some of the recent developments there, and I'll take the example of California. She, like some of us, started her career in Washington at the Brookings Institution and then moved on to the Urban Institute.

The Rise in Disability Recipiency and the Decline in Unemployment

So the Cardin Bill probably would cost substantially more than the administration proposal. It is also possible to increase short-term demand through consumer-oriented tax cuts.

Unemployment insurance acts as an automatic stabilizer — injecting money into the economy as the labor market wanes and unemployment increases. We first modeled CVD as a function of lagged state maximum unemployment income benefits adjusting for confounders but without state fixed effects.

We don't know what the duration of the recession is going to be, whatever its magnitude is. Though Congress has often used transportation infrastructure as a method to generate spending during a downturn, this process could instead be automated by changing the spending rules for the BUILD program formerly the TIGER grant program so that the federal government would fund more projects during downturns and fewer during a boom.

An important, yet unexplored question, is whether US unemployment policies might reduce CVD risk by providing a safety net during unemployment spells. Not only would this serve the interests of the families who have experienced job loss, but it would serve as a well-targeted and highly effective economic stimulus.

Additionally, except during an exceptionally high and sustained period of unemployment, large UI extensions have limited scope to act as macroeconomic stabilizers even if they were made automatic because relatively few individuals reach long-term unemployment.

But the data that I looked at at least give us a bit of a hint, I think. There was a serious proposal last year in California to institute an alternative base period. And, of course, as you would expect, quite a few of them are.

The cost of the higher unemployment is lost wages and incomes to workers and their families, a further widening of inequalities, an inhospitable environment for welfare reform and the social costs of greater crime and worsened health.

And, also, it targets these benefits on states that have experienced an increase in unemployment, not necessarily high unemployment rates, but an increase in the total unemployment rate, not the insured unemployment rate, compared to the three months prior to the attack.

It seems that states face the toughest challenges ahead. Thus, a package of unemployment reforms should be part of any stimulus plan. But if you look at the administration's proposal, the administration's tried to target its extension of 13 weeks of benefits on individuals directly affected by the terrorist acts in the disaster emergency areas, primarily New York, Virginia, and New Jersey would be the states where the workers would receive benefits.

Table 1 Descriptive statistics at baseline, Health and Retirement Study, ages 50 to The report by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices includes federal policy recommendations and an overview of cluster-based economic development approaches. And it was not an undue burden for the states because the states didn't pay the whole cost under a match and grant program, which AFDC Aid to Families with Dependent Children was.

And then, I've provided you an executive summary of the comprehensive UIES reform package that we in the Department of Labor and representatives of business and labor developed last year.
