The design for a cross-site evaluation of Project LAUNCH – a program promoting the wellness of young children ages birth to eight years of age that provides funding to States and Tribes -- employed mixed methods. The goal of the design was to obtain descriptive data and impact estimates, including semiannual grantee surveys, qualitative data obtained through interviews with key informants on site visits to grantees and through telephone interviews, review of grantee documents, and collected statistical findings from grantee special studies of the impact of the Project on community-wide population indicators of child wellness.
Researchers presented an overview of the Cross-site Evaluation and described the research questions, data collection activities, analysis framework and dissemination plan.
