This catalog presents a range of information from studies of programs that served low-income fathers, as a part of an evidence review of family strengthening programs. Each study description provides details on the research, including study design and characteristics of those included in the sample, and of the programs, such as structure, staffing and operations.
Studies are rated (high, moderate, low) based on the likelihood that the estimated effects reported are the result of the program rather than other factors, such as natural change over time. The ratings categories take into account each study’s design, execution, and analysis. A separate companion catalog presents studies of programs that served low-income couples.
