Evaluating Two Approaches to Case Management: Implementation, Participation Patterns, Costs, and Three-Year Impacts of the Columbus Welfare-to-Work Program. Gross Cost per Control Group Member


Control group members participated in education and training activities on their own initiative. In addition, they were eligible for some support services from the welfare department. Therefore, the gross cost per control group member for employment-related services includes expenditures by the welfare department and non-welfare agencies. This cost serves as a benchmark against which the gross cost per program group member is compared in order to determine the net cost of the programs.
