A Study of Low Income Families: Methodology. Final Report.
Thompson, David L.; Miles, Guy H.
This report summarizes the methods used to study a nationwide sample of over 6000 low-income people, both welfare recipients and the working poor. The objectives were: (1) to find out if self-actuated work behavior among low-income people is related systematically to identifiable characteristics of the individual; (2) to develop hypotheses concerning the attributes of the WIN enrollee that will be important in determining his success in WIN; and (3) to investigate certain assumptions about the stability of the low-income family. This report is a summary of the methodology used in the study, including the sampling approach and a description of the survey instruments. (NTIS)
