The Employment Strategies for Low-Income Adults Evidence Review (ESER) is a systematic review of research on employment and training programs for low-income individuals. The goal of the review is to identify programs and services that help low-income adults get and keep jobs and, ultimately, become self-sufficient. Mathematica is conducting the review for the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation. This fact sheet outlines the standards and methods that governed the review, under four main activities: searching the literature, screening studies for eligibility, assessing each study’s strength of evidence, and extracting information reported in the studies.
