The Fulton County Descriptive Study, A Subset of the JOBS Child Outcomes Study, 1992-1994
Investigators: Kristin A. Moore, Martha J. Zaslow, Mary Jo Coiro, & Suzanne M. Miller

The JOBS Child Outcomes Study is a longitudinal investigation of the life circumstances and development of young children (ages 3 to 5 year at baseline) in families receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children whose mothers were randomly assigned to one of three groups (Human Capital Development, Labor Force Attachment, Control) to test strategies to reduce welfare dependency and promote self-sufficiency. The data were collected as part of an evaluation of the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) Training Program. The evaluation was conducted by the Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation; The Child Outcomes substudy of the parents and children was conducted by Child Trends, Inc. The Fulton County Descriptive Study, the subject of this data set, was a subset of the JOBS Child Outcomes Study sample and only took place in Fulton County, Georgia. Its purpose was to describe the participants in one site soon after random assignment. The study gathered information about child outcomes and intervening maternal, familial, and child processes related to cognitive development, safety and health, problem behavior and emotional well-being, and social development.
