Abstract

The report found that women who take part in Job Search--compared to those with no recorded WorkFirst activity--have higher earnings and use welfare less. This was determined after controlling for the effects of regional economies and other factors. The report was prepared as part of an ongoing evaluation of the Washington State WorkFirst program mandated by the Legislature, and was prepared for JLARC by the Washington State Institute for Public Policy.
