|Description:||The ADARE Project began in 1998 using the availability of longitudinal files of state administrative records and the combined expertise of university researchers and state Labor Market Information unit staffs to investigate policy issues of interest to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration. The 1998-2002 phase of the Project focused on welfare-to-work transition flows in six large urban centers—Atlanta, Baltimore, Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale), Chicago, Houston and Kansas City. Since July 2002, the ADARE Project partners — the University of Baltimore, the University of Texas-Austin, Florida Atlantic University, Georgia State University, the University of Missouri-Columbia, Northern Illinois University, and the W. E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research — have concentrated attention on Workforce Investment Act Standardized Record (WIASRD) files provided by Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, Texas and Washington. Projects are currently focusing on client flows, services and outcomes under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 in the participating states. An ADARE Project website is being developed. Project reports and related information will be available on the website of the Jacob France Institute at the University of Baltimore.|
