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


This topic may be of less importance for our proposed survey, given the limitations on survey length and the fact that state administrative data files can identify respondents who have participated in TANF-sponsored work and job skills training programs. However, data files can be inaccurate and will not capture participation in non-TANF-sponsored programs. We therefore recommend asking two measures under this topic: (1) whether a respondent has attended a GED class in the past year, and (2) whether a respondent has attended any other type of educational training in the past year, using either the Missouri or the Nebraska measure.
