Survey Design for TANF Caseload Project: Summary Report and Recommendations. Recommended Measures


We recommend asking two measures under this topic, both taken from the Nebraska survey  first, whether the respondent is currently married, separated, divorced, widowed, or never been married. These categories are clear and distinct from one another. Second, for those respondents who answer anything other than married, we recommend asking a follow-up question on whether the respondent currently lives together as a couple with someone. We believe the wording of this question is less likely to offend respondents.
