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


We recommend six measures under this topic, taken from the WES and YFC surveys. From the WES, we recommend asking two measures on the availability and service use of (1) community day care and after-school programs, and (2) literacy, GED, or tutoring programs. From the YFC survey, we recommend asking four measures on the availability and service use of (1) career or job counseling, (2) counseling or treatment for alcohol or drug abuse, (3) counseling to help with other personal or family problems, and (4) health clinics or places for emergency health care. These measures provide a brief but salient list of services that recipients might need access to.
