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

12/01/2001

Measures of moving reflect any moves that occurred during the five-year follow-up period. The proportion of respondents who moved is calculated as the number who reported moving at least once since the time of random assignment over all respondents. Measures of housing status reflect only status during the month prior to the survey interview. Respondents were considered to be renting a home or room if they reported renting their own home or room or living with family or friends and contributing to part of the rent. Respondents were considered to be living in other housing arrangements if they reported living in a group shelter, in jail, alone and rent free, in another unspecified housing arrangement, or being homeless.(7) Living in public or subsidized housing includes living in housing owned or operated by a local housing authority or other government agency as well as Section 8 housing.
