The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Transitions Off Welfare: An Examination of Demographic, Socioeconomic, and Motivational Predictors.

Stellmack, Amy L., Connie R. Wanberg, and John Kammeyer-Mueller.

This article reports on a three-wave longitudinal study of 1,071 female Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) recipients to identify predictors of welfare outcomes in the context of the 1996 federal welfare reform act. In addition to the demographic and socioeconomic variables that typically have been examined in the welfare literature, the authors examined motivational variables (i.e., achievement motivation and goal commitment) that have been touted as important by the popular press and in qualitative studies, but that have never been systematically measured.
