* The dollar amount given and the percentages of total grant amounts are for benefits paid for December, 1998, eligibility. Expenditures shown are not necessarily amounts paid for cases where applicant is currently a teenager. These amounts show what is being paid for cases where the female applicant or the male applicant’s spouse was a teenager when she had her first known child.
* For about 23% of the cases statewide, we were unable to find a female applicant or applicant spouse for whom we could compute an age at the birth of her first child.
