Two public use files have been compiled from this data collection: Supported Work Employment and Earnings File (Part 1), and Supported Work Deviant Behavior File (Part 2). Each file contains data for up to five interviews. The Employment and Earnings File contains data from all interview modules except the drug and crime sections, and the Deviant Behavior File contains all variables on the Employment and Earnings File as well as additional information on drugs and crime. Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) recipients were further asked about children in school and welfare participation, while all non-AFDC respondents were questioned about any extralegal activities.
