Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE): PROMISE 60-Month Sampling and Survey Plan
- The 60-month survey consists of two interviews: one with the youth who enrolled in the PROMISE evaluation and the other with the parent who enrolled with the youth. Both will collect information on outcomes that might be affected by the PROMISE programs and which cannot be obtained readily from other sources. Such outcomes include educational attainment, employment, earnings, and participation in public assistance programs.
- Survey data collection will span 29 months, with a rolling release of sample in cohorts that will mirror the months of study enrollment. We will conduct interviews in English and Spanish via three modes: (1) interviewer administration by telephone, (2) interviewer administration in person, and (3) self-administration by mail. We anticipate that the parent interview will take 25-35 minutes and the youth interview will take 20-35 minutes to complete.
- The 60-month survey uses the same sample included in the 18-month survey and is not contingent upon completion of the 18-month survey. As of May 2018, there were 11,416 youth and 11,324 parents eligible for the 60-month survey. All youth and parents who enrolled in the PROMISE evaluation and were randomly assigned are eligible for the survey unless (1) the parent or youth is deceased or (2) the family was not selected for the CaPROMISE survey sample. If a youth’s guardian is an agency, such as a group home or a child welfare agency, then the family is ineligible for the parent survey. Enrollees who formally withdrew from the national evaluation will not receive an invitation to participate in the survey.
