Approaches to Evaluating Welfare Reform: Lessons from Five State Demonstrations. b. Respondent Payments


Respondents are being paid in the California and Colorado evaluations, and payments are planned in Michigan. In Minnesota, for the 12-month followup, payments are only being offered to those who, according to Minnesota's AFDC system, are not on assistance or do not have a phone number. For the 36-month followup, all respondents will be paid. There is no mention of respondent payments in the Wisconsin WNW evaluation plan. Payments are countable income in all of these states.
