The SSRC collaborated with Marci Ybarra at the University of Chicago on The Implications of Public Programs as Maternity-Leave among Single, Poor Mothers.

During The Implications of Public Programs as Maternity-Leave among Single, Poor Mothers, Dr. Ybarra discussed her research on the use of cash welfare as a means-tested maternity leave program since the welfare reforms of the 1990’s and on paid leave programs and policies (temporary disability insurance, paid family leave) for new mothers. She also shared findings about the relationships between these programs and economic and material well-being for low-income single mothers with newborns.
