Definition and Source



Number of children ages 0 to 18 who are recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The percentage reported is for how many children are recipients of TANF out of all 0 to 18 year olds.

The denominator for the percentage is the total population ages 0 through 18 in respective geographic areas for the matching year. Not all children ages 0 through 18 in the population are eligible for TANF and this percentage does not represent a percent enrolled who are eligible.

Data Source

Numerator: Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, Human and Community Services Division. Denominator: U.S. Census populations with bridged race categories from the National Center for Health Statistics. Obtained from the Missouri Census Data Center:


GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect the child's place of residence. 
DATE - Data is for the month of June as a snapshot of the state fiscal year end.
TANF recipient data are published ahead of the percentage since population estimates lag by one year before publication. NA means data is not available or waiting on population estimates to calculate the most recent year's percent.
