Description
  • Abstract

    The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG), administered by the Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, was created to provide education and training to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals for occupations in the healthcare field that pay well and are expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand. HPOG programs are expected to target skills and competencies demanded by the healthcare industry; support career pathways; result in an employer- or industry-recognized certificate or degree; combine supportive services with education and training services to help participants overcome barriers to employment; and provide services at times and locations that are easily accessible to targeted populations. In 2010, the first round of HPOG awards was made to 27 organizations located across 20 states to carry out five-year programs in their areas. The first round of HPOG grant awards is referred to as HPOG 1.0. In 2015, a second round of HPOG grant awards was made to 32 organizations located across 21 states for a new five-year period. This second round of grants is referred to as HPOG 2.0. HPOG is authorized as a demonstration program with a mandated federal evaluation. The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) is utilizing a multi-pronged evaluation strategy to document the operations and assess the success of the HPOG program. The evaluation strategy aims to provide information on program implementation, systems change, outcomes, and impacts. This collection is organized into 14 data parts, including: 3 HPOG National Implementation Evaluation datasets of employers (DS1), grantees (DS2), and management and staff (DS3) surveys; a HPOG 15-month follow-up survey dataset (DS4); an analysis file with HPOG participant covariates and outcomes (DS5); 6 Performance Reporting System (PRS) datasets; 3 datasets from the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education Evaluation (PACE) containing a subset of respondents who participated in both HPOG and PACE studies; The PRS is the federal management information system for HPOG grantees that was designed to support participant record and case management, program performance measurement, and program evaluation research. The Participant dataset (DS6) is at the person-level and contains background information on participants at the time of intake into the HPOG program.; The Participant Supplemental dataset (DS7) is at the person-level and contains supplemental information for participants who participated in the HPOG impact evaluation.; The Education dataset (DS8) contains the date and type of remedial pre-training activities of participants during the HPOG program. This dataset is at the training-level, with one row for each educational activity.; The Employment dataset (DS9) contains the date and type of employment development activities of participants during the HPOG program, as well as job characteristics of participants who find employment. This dataset is at the employment activity level, with one row for each employment activity.; The Services dataset (DS10) is at the person-level and contains the date and type of supportive services received by participants from the HPOG program.; The Training dataset (DS11) contains the date and type of vocational training received by participants from the HPOG program. This dataset is at the training level, with one row for each occupational training activity.; The PACE study was designed to produce rigorous evidence for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers about the effectiveness of nine career pathways approaches that sought to increase credentials, employment, and self-sufficiency among low-income, low-skilled Americans. The 3 HPOG subset datasets from this study include the Basic Information Form Data File (DS12), the First Follow-Up Data File (DS13), and the Self-Administered Questionnaire Data File (DS14). For more information about the PACE study, please see its ICPSR study page (ICPSR #37289). Various demographic information, such as age, sex, race, and ethnicity, is also included in the data.
  • Abstract

    The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) study's key evaluation questions included: What impacts do HPOG programs as a group have on outcomes of participants and their families?; To what extent do these impacts vary across selected subpopulations?; Which locally adopted program components influence average impacts?; To what extent does participation in a particular HPOG component(s) change the impact?; To what extent do specific program enhancements have impacts, relative to the "standard" HPOG program?;
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
  • Methods

    Presence of Common Scales: See documentation.
  • Methods

    Response Rates: All participants completed the baseline survey. 75.6 percent of the Impact Study sample completed a short-term interview.

Note
2020-07-23 The data and ICPSR codebooks were updated with standardized variable and value labels, and question text was added to the ICPSR codebooks for datasets 1-4. Additionally, 3 datasets and corresponding documentation were added to the collection from the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education Evaluation (PACE) study.2019-12-23 The ICPSR codebook for part 6, "Performance Reporting System: Participant", was removed.2019-10-29 This collection was updated to include data files and ICPSR codebooks. The previous release only included P.I. documentation files (i.e., codebooks and survey instruments). These P.I. documentation files were also renamed to match the study part number of their corresponding data file. Funding institution(s): United States Department of Health and Human Services.
