Interim Report to the Wisconsin Legislature on the WEJT/CWEP Evaluation.
Pawasarat, John; And Others
This report consists of tabulations by county for the entire 1987 and 1988 population receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) and the entire population in the Work Experience and Job Training (WEJT) and Community Work Experience (CWEP) programs in Wisconsin. The tables include a complete history of all reported earnings data for eight quarters beginning with the adult population on AFDC in 1987-1988. The report also includes a detailed description of both the WEJT and CWEP experience in 1987-1988, and traces the experience of programs that have expanded from an estimated $7 million in 1987 to an estimated $40-50 million in 1989-1990. Fourth quarter earnings are used as a benchmark of progress throughout this report. Measures of program impact include job retention, average wages, overall economic well-being, and welfare savings that result from participants finding long-term employment. Appendix A lists 1987-1989 WEJT county summaries and descriptions, and Appendix B includes tables and background information. (NLA)
