Status Report on Research on the Outcomes of Welfare Reform, 2001. Other Outcomes Data

08/17/2001

The descriptive statistics highlighted above provide some important insights into the outcomes and well-being of individuals and families leaving welfare. However, they do not represent the sum total of the rich administrative and survey data collected by states and counties under the ASPE-funded grants. Links to most of the individual state and county reports can be found at <http://aspe.hhs.gov/hsp/leavers99/reports.htm>. The initial synthesis report by the Urban Institute is posted on the same web site, at <http://aspe.hhs.gov/hsp/leavers99/synthesis01/index.htm>. In addition, ASPE is working collaboratively with the grantees and a technical assistance contractor to make the grantees' welfare outcomes data files available to researchers for secondary analyses. Information on how to secure access to these data files can be found on the ASPE-sponsored web page on Welfare Leavers and Diversion Studies at <http://aspe.hhs.gov/hsp/leavers99/index.htm>.
