           EVIDENCE FROM A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL EVALUATION

Lecture by PBK Visiting Scholar: James X. Sullivan.  Pizza served at 11:45.  Talk from 12:10-12:50.

Current approaches to fighting poverty, at both the national and local level, tend to address the symptoms rather than the causes of poverty. While these programs provide critical temporary benefits to those facing hardship, they are limited in their ability to provide a permanent solution to poverty. There is renewed attention within both the policy and service provider communities for a more innovative approach to help people living in poverty gain self-sufficiency. This lecture would discuss a new, more comprehensive approach to fighting poverty where social service providers work more closely with clients to address obstacles to self-sufficiency and improve economic well-being. We will discuss the evidence from a randomized controlled trial evaluation of an intensive case management program on labor market and other key outcomes for families currently struggling with poverty. The results provide strong evidence that a more comprehensive approach has the potential to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable populations.

James Sullivan is a Professor of Economics and Gilbert F. Schaefer College Chair at the University of Notre Dame. Professor Sullivan was recently appointed to the U.S. Commission on Social Impact Partnerships and serves on the National Poverty Center Advisory Board. His research examines the effectiveness of anti-poverty programs at the national, state, and local level. He also studies
