Abstract:

In a June 1979 letter, the former Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance requested that we 1 determine which States have or are currently performing intrastate matches of public assistance rolls, 2 determine which States have used the Department of Health and Human Services HHS Interjurisdictional Data Exchange IDEX model for performing matches, 3 select several States and perform various analyses of their AFDC computerized beneficiary records by using identifiers other than just the social security number to detect duplication, and 4 match duplicates found on the AFDC rolls with the Medicaid and Food Stamp computerized beneficiary records to determine the impact on those programs.
