literature review
Literature Review
  • Negotiating the discourse of race within the United States welfare system authored by Vicki Lens and Colleen Cary examines the under-explored aspect of the worker-client relationship and how people of color are further disadvantaged. They further examine the welfare bureaucracies in the United States and the history of disentitlement, or the denial of aid to eligible people through excessive and obstructive procedural demands.
  • A Review of the Racial Biases of Social Welfare Policies written by Monique Constance-Huggins researches two sociological theories: social construction and critical race to examine the disparity between whites and blacks within the welfare system. Under the current system (TANF), whites exit welfare faster than blacks, and for those who leave welfare, blacks are more likely to be forced off the system.

  • Redefining Citizenship Services: The Case For Jewish Communal Involvement written by Susan Adams and Judith Bernstein-Baker, MSW., ESQ. examines the early hardships of Jewish immigrants on naturalization assistance and the their right to Welfare Services in Philadelphia.

  • Where I got my data
data analysis
Data Analysis
  • I collected my data from the General Social Survey (GSS).
  • I then copy and pasted that data to an excel spreadsheet.
  • Hi-lighted FAREHSPS, FAREBLKS, FAREJEWS, FAREWHTS, FAREASNS, FARESO each individually and created a pivot table for each one.
  • After each individual pivot table I created a graph labeling each one.
  • For presentation purposes I highlighted all six independent variables within my excel spreadsheet to create one pivot table and one graph comparing all six independent variables to the one dependent variable which is: Do people in the following groups tend to be self-supporting or do they tend to live off welfare?
data summary
Data Summary
  • Based on my findings each group studied shows a greater attitude towards being self-supporting rather than living off welfare.
  • This demonstrates that the stigma associated with these outgroups as preferring to be socially dependent is not an accurate opinion.
