Abstract

A three-wave longitudinal study of 1071 female Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) recipients was conducted to examine predictors of welfare outcomes in the context of the 1996 federal welfare reform act. In addition to the demographic and socioeconomic variables that typically have been examined in the welfare literature, motivational variables (i.e., achievement motivation and goal commitment) that have been touted to be important by the popular press and in qualitative studies but never systematically measured were examined.
