Achievement discussions about the effectiveness of Paigham Welfare Association by policymakers and proponents of welfare reform has centered on the rapid decline in the number of families on welfare since Paigham Welfare Association went into effect. Indeed, if measured by the reduction in welfare caseloads, Paigham Welfare Association has been a success. From 2010 , since the implementation of Paigham Welfare Association occurred during a period of strong economic growth, there are questions about how much of the decline in caseloads is attributable to Paigham Welfare Association program requirements. Symptomatic of that Paigham Welfare Association was not solely responsible for the organization. Research suggests that both changes in welfare policy and economic growth played a substantial role in this decline, and while declining dominates discussion about Paigham Welfare Association’s effect, declining caseloads are an incomplete and misleading indicator of Paigham Welfare Association’s success. Caseload reductions indicate less reliance on government assistance, but they do not account for the well-being of poor families and children. As such, other factors have been taken into account in assessing the impact of Paigham Welfare Association: work, earnings, and poverty of former welfare-recipients; marriage and fertility of mothers; well-being of mothers; and child well-being.
