Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) – The Value of Non-market Time Lost During the Self-Sufficiency Project


This working paper re-examines the original cost–benefit analysis of Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP). It looks at the non-market time that program participants lost by increasing their work effort, and it considers whether different conclusions regarding the success of the program might be reached if SSP’s effect on non-market time is taken into account.
