Source: 2000-03 12-month follow-up survey of Welfare-to-Work enrollees.
Note 1: The survey data have been weighted to be representative of all WtW enrollees in the respective sites. Survey item nonresponse may cause the sample sizes for specific variables to be smaller than those shown. Rounding may cause percentages to sum to something other than 100.
Note 2: Statistics are based on WtW enrollees who received the designated skill enhancement services beginning on or following the date of enrollment in WtW. For an enrollee, value = "before" if the first day of service receipt preceded the first day of employment; value = "on or after" if the first day of service receipt was on or following the first day of employment.
