This chapter examines the relationship between income support policies and poverty among lone mother families in the United States relative to Canada and Western Europe. It simulates the effect on lone mothers in the United States of scaling back the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program and introduces a European style family allowance. Finally, the chapter uses regression analysis to study the relationship between wage and salary income and income from child support and various personal characteristics.
