The estimate of the number of welfare workers is drawn from Steve Jenkins, Cheryl Dorsey, and Olivia Golden, "Characteristics of Service Deliverers: Who Delivers Services to Poor Children?" (Unpublished paper prepared for the executive session, entitled "Making the System Work for Poor Children," Cambridge, MA: Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government, Wiener Center for Social Policy, updated June 1989), 8, n. 29. The average monthly number of families on AFDC in fiscal year 1990 was 3.97 million.
