The past 25 years seen substantial reform for both the American and Canadian social safety nets. In both countries, programs for low-income families with children have evolved significantly, more than in almost any other policy area.

In their new paper, “How do the U.S and Canadian social safety nets compare for women and children” Martin Prosperity Institute fellow Mark Stabile and co-author and Berkeley professor Hilary Hoynes examine the evolution of these policies across both countries, while measuring how each has fared in achieving their goals.
