Evaluation of Family Preservation and Reunification Programs: Final Report - Volume Two. 4.5 Outcomes


The following outcome analyses compare the experimental and control groups. As previously discussed, there were a few cases in which the original random assignments were violated, that is control group families were given FPS services or minimal services were provided. There were also cases which are thought to have not received services before the post-treatment interview due to a delay in the assignment of a worker to that case. Therefore, analyses were conducted for the primary analysis group (the original random assignment group), the secondary analysis group (dropping the violations and minimal services cases from the original random assignment group), and, for interview data, the tertiary analysis group (dropping additional cases which appear to have not had a worker assigned in time for the post-treatment interview to determine effects of service). (72) Secondary and tertiary analyses are reported in footnotes.
