Abstract

This research tests the theory of active representation in welfare offices. Relying on a model developed by Saltzstein, the research examines the linkage between social origins and attitudes or values, which are critical antecedents to actions and, ultimately, to policy outcomes. Survey data from eleven welfare offices across four states are relied upon to test for this linkage.
