How Effective Are Different Welfare-to-Work Approaches? Five-Year Adult and Child Impacts for Eleven Programs. Measurement Issues


The outcomes examined in this chapter generally fall into the following categories: marital status, household composition, moving and housing status, and employment-related and domestic abuse by intimate partners and others. The relevant time periods for which these outcomes are measured also vary, with some capturing circumstances at the time of the survey interview, the month prior to the interview, during the last year of the follow-up, during the entire five-year follow-up period, or at any point during an individual's life.
