Compiles and summarizes the work that was completed for the New York City Human Resources Administration by The New York City-RAND Institute. The report describes the research tasks that were undertaken in a contract year, sets the context for the research, documents the steps and progress that unfolded during the year, and lists preliminary and final reports that were prepared. It is not intended to be a summary of findings, but some of the more important findings are documented throughout each section. The report includes a description of a study of multiple welfare benefits in New York City that was funded by HEW during fiscal year 1976. Includes full documentation and abstracts of reports and papers completed by the project from 1972 to 1976, and lists all project staff members.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Report series. The report was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 1993 that represented the principal publication documenting and transmitting RAND's major research findings and final research.

This research in the public interest was supported by RAND, using discretionary funds made possible by the generosity of RAND's donors, the fees earned on client-funded research, and independent research and development (IR&D) funds provided by the Department of Defense.
