Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) – Assessing the Impact of Non-response on the Treatment Effect in the Canadian Self-Sufficiency Project

Summary

This working paper investigates whether there is a bias in the measurement of the Self-Sufficiency Project treatment effect because up to 20 per cent of the intended sample did not agree to take part. It does this by comparing the estimated impact of the program that was obtained using only experimental data with the impacts obtained using administrative data on the individuals who did not take part in the experiment.
