Evaluating work-related cash benefit programs: The Earned Income Tax Credit


Journal Article

The Earned Income Tax Credit is expected to cost the federal government $27.1 billion in 1998, making it the largest cash or near-cash program available to low-income families in the United States. Strategies most commonly employed to gain insight into the central issues of this tax credit include data sleuthing, simulations, natural experiments comparing participant and control groups, and cross-sectional econometric techniques.
