Interim Status Report on Research on the Outcomes of Welfare Reform. Employment and Earnings


Almost all grantees plan to use a combination of administrative data and survey data to examine such issues as employment status, quarterly earnings, wage levels, hours worked, and types of jobs or occupations.  In addition, 10 of the 14 grantees include questions on fringe benefits on their surveys, and several include questions about job­related training.  Figure A-1 shows, by employment­related topic area, the number of grantees using survey and administrative data to study each topic.
