Where are the numbers?
01/31/2011 | Steven Hoffman

I saw an article a little while ago that I believe said the state of Maine had more people on the dole than there were taxpayers. I have been trying to figure out how many of the 19,378,102 persons living in New York are pulling the cart verse riding. I have tried all sorts of searches and all sorts of sites but I can’t seem to get the numbers for my state (New York). I am sure these numbers were figured on the last census and I have searched the census site and can’t seem to get up to date information. I am sure I am missing something or going about it the wrong way.


TOPICS: Local News; Miscellaneous; Reference
KEYWORDS: ebt; entitlements; welfare; welfarestate
Any help would be appreciated.

No search help here. I’ve been trying to find a break down on members of the House and Senate by religion and can’t find one. Shirley it exists.

Thanks. But why doesn’t anyone have numbers more recent? The best numbers are from 2008. Why am I thinking it is much worse than the old number show? I couldn’t read the last full article since I didn’t subscribe. Thanks again.
