Webinar Title: Measuring Economic Security Outcomes in Fatherhood Programs 

Date: Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Time: 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. EST 

Most fatherhood programs seek to improve economic security for participants and their children. This Fatherhood Research & Practice Network webinar will explore how outcomes, such as employment, earnings, child support payments and financial well-being, are measured using self-reports and agency records.

The challenges associated with generating reliable information using each approach will be addressed. FRPN will also discuss qualitative assessments of economic well-being that focus on stable housing, food security and other day-to-day indicators. 

The featured speakers for this free webinar include:

  • Bret Barden, Research Associate, MDRC
  • Elaine Sorensen, Senior Advisor, US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Support Enforcement
