For the caseload, payment/expenditure, unemployment, and population on assistance figures, the percent and numerical change between the current month and prior month, and the percent change between the current month and same month in the prior year, are also displayed. Note: for this publication, prior period data is updated to reflect the most current information such as county reported changes, updates, and revisions (except for Foster Care (beginning with the July 2001 report month). For this reason, the numerical and percentage changes cannot be calculated using data from prior month PAFF publications.
