Abstract

In this edited work, leading social scientists examine the intent, design, and administration of the Supported Work Demonstration programs in 10 cities, serving large numbers of long-term welfare recipients, ex-addicts, ex-offenders and young school dropouts. Eligible individuals were randomly assigned to the offer of the supported employment experience or to a business as usual control condition. The study samples were followed for up to three years following enrollment. The findings are synthesized through a comprehensive benefit-cost analysis.
