Temporary Assistance for Need Families (TANF) participation by race/ethnicity in Virginia
- Sort / Rank
Definition and Source
The number and percent of children of the total number who receive TANF. This is individual recipients and not households. It is by state fiscal year, not point in time data. Hispanic ethnicity is not included in race data and therefore is not mutually exclusive and can not be used to derive percent’s among other races. American Indian and Alaskan Native race are combined. Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander are also combined.
