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


We recommend asking two questions under this topic, using the WES measures. The first question concerns why a respondent is not currently working or has never worked, using general wording and allowing for multiple responses. Although the reasons why a respondent was not working may be answered by the various questions covering barrier measures that we propose, we think it important to ask a general question on the topic, to capture any information that might not be addressed directly by these measures. The second question we recommend is the lowest hourly wage a respondent would accept for taking a job. Time permitting, we also would recommend asking whether the respondent perceived any discrimination during hiring.
