Description: The Survey of Program Dynamics is a longitudinal, demographic survey designed to collect data on the economic, household, and social characteristics of a nationally representative sample of the U.S. population over time. The primary goals of the SPD are to provide information on spells of actual and potential program participation (over a ten-year period), to examine the causes of program participation and its long-term consequences (on recipients and their families), and to monitor the possible long-term changes (for individuals) that result from implementing welfare reform.
