Project Abstract

In collaboration with the Colorado Department of Human Services, the Colorado Lab will describe the feasibility of using routinely collected administrative data to identify employment-related reasons that relate to churn for the cohort of Child Support cases that opened in 2015. Churn for the purposes of this study is defined as changes in payment behavior (e.g., paying prior months, then skipping a month). This study will assess the quality of employment-related data routinely collected in ASCES through review of the data and discussion with CDHS program and/or data services staff.
