dc.description.abstractThis paper analyzes the mobility of low income mothers in Australia between two groups ofgovernmental transfer payments: Income support payments (IS) and Family Payments (FP,non-income support payments) only. While IS payments are to provide a subsistence of livingfor her, FP payments are to help low-medium income families with the costs of dependentchildren. We use a dynamic multinomial logit panel data model with random effects,explaining the reliance of each individual on the income support system during each quarterbetween 1997 and 2000. The data is drawn from the FaCS 1% Longitudinal Data Set (LDS),a sample of fortnightly administrative records of welfare payments in Australia. We find thatboth state dependence and unobserved heterogeneity play significant roles. We also find thatsingle mothers and females with partners on income support payments are much more likelyto be on income support than otherwise.en_US
