Logical approach lit review
Logical Approach Lit. Review

  • “Approaches to the creation of jobs that are targeted to the unemployed are more cost-effective than are aggregated approaches such as tax cuts”(Hooper Briar 1983). This means creating new jobs that benefit everyone costs less money and gets people directly back to work

  • A Study conducted by Kay Price found that “age represents the single most significant barrier to obtaining paid employment”(2004). Therefore assistance from other parties as well as open-mindedness can be beneficial.

  • Jones argues that “paid employment ethic should be replaced with a work ethic”(1992). This means that women should be paid for things such as child rearing and caring for the elderly. Thus helping to reduce poverty later on.

Data program analysis
Data & Program Analysis

  • Research Question: are those enrolled in AAIFS less likely to be unemployed than those within the community who do not participate in the program?

  • Binary (yes or no) test.

  • Cross-tab and Chi Squared

  • Logistic Regression

  • Evaluation Design: XO

    O

  • This compares those in the program to those not in the program and whether or not they are still unemployed.


Data analysis
Data Analysis

My Program appeared to be working because 45.8% of those in the Program were unemployed as opposed to 51.1% of those not in the program. However, this does not prove to be statistically significant at .05 since my p-value was .147


Data analysis1
Data Analysis

My program proved to be further statistically insignificant after running the logistic regression because .074 is greater than .05.
