Pepper, John V.
Journal of Human Resources, v38 n4 p860-80 Fall 2003
Data from experimental evaluations of four state welfare-to-work programs were combined with information on the selection process in order to determine the efficacy of social programs in light of performance standards. Data suggest that either the federal requirements cannot be met or that standards can only be met under special circumstances. (Contains 24 references.) (JOW)
