Building Evidence on Employment Strategies for Low-Income Families: Using a Random Assignment Study Design to Measure Effectiveness

This five-minute video introduces the Building Evidence on Employment Strategies (BEES) project, a national study of innovative programs working to boost employment and earnings for individuals with low incomes. The video explains how using a random assignment study will help researchers measure the programs' effectiveness, build reliable evidence, and inform policy.

The BEES project is sponsored by the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is being conducted by MDRC and its partners, Abt Associates and MEF Associates.
