Scope and Contents

The Department of Public Welfare was created in 19i9. The name of the department was changed a number of times. In 1963 it was renamed the Department of Family and Children Services. This department was abolished by the Executive Reorganization Act of 1972 and its duties, functions and powers were transferred to the Department of Human Resources. The publications comprising this series contain various statistical charts, tables and statements relating to the kind of public assistance the department disposes of and the type of and number of recipients of each.
