Executive Summary

This paper aims at presenting an assessment of welfare reforms under a framework of program heterogeneity and alternative measures of success. The authors focus on a specific welfare program - Madrid's Ingreso Madrile?o de Integraci?n (IMI) - which comprises heterogeneous subprograms. They test whether work-related subprograms perform better than general activities aimed at improving life skills. They also try to identify which work related subprogram works best. The availability of a large database of administrative records (over 50,000 spells) matched with a special survey conducted for former welfare recipients makes possible to develop different types of evaluation strategies on the basis of multiple participation states.
