CLASP conducted a state-by-state analysis of key program trends in the child support (IV-D) program for the period 1991 through 1995. The study looked at key performance indicators, caseload trends, program expenditures, and staffing ratios.

This paper analyzes child support caseload trends during the five-year period. Preliminary 1996 data are also included if available. The analysis is based on data reported by state child support programs to the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) and published in annual reports to Congress. (The full report can be ordered for $7.00 by contacting CLASP.)
