National Evaluation of the Welfare-to-Work Grants Program: Final Report. Sources of Data on Individual WtW Enrollees

09/01/2004

The findings for WtW enrollees that are presented in this report are based on individual-level data from three main sources:

  • Baseline Forms. At the time of program entry, WtW enrollees completed a two-page background information form. These forms were completed at the WtW service providers site under the supervision of provider staff.
  • Participant Surveys. Two follow-up surveys were conducted as part of the WtW evaluation. The first survey was conducted as soon as possible after the first anniversary of program entry. MPR staff conducted the approximately 35-minute interviews either by telephone or in-person using computer-assisted methodologies.(12) A second survey explored enrollee employment and overall well-being 24 months after program enrollment.
  • Administrative Records. This report also includes findings on employment and earnings, TANF receipt, and other outcomes for WtW enrollees for the period beginning one year prior to WtW enrollment and ending two years after enrollment. These findings are based on data from state administrative files for Unemployment Insurance (UI), TANF, and other programs.
