The California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program is California's response to the welfare reforms Congress set in motion in 1996. This document, a companion volume to MR-1052-CDSS, contains, in alphabetical order by county, detailed responses from each of California's 58 counties to a statewide survey conducted by RAND in late 1998 as part of its evaluation of CalWORKs. For each county, two additional pieces of information are also included: a brief profile of the county's population and employment characteristics and simple descriptive tabulations of the county's welfare caseload. Graphs showing caseload characteristics trace the changing size of the AFDC/TANF caseload over time. Finally, for each county, the document presents exact survey responses made by county welfare administrators.
