Average Hourly Wage for Newly Employed Clients Receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
This monthly statistic is obtained by calculating the average hourly wage of current and recent TANF recipients who obtained employment during the month. The annual statistic is the average of each month's statistic over the state fiscal year. This outcome measures the effectiveness of employment services in assisting client to find and maintain a living wage thereby increasing independence and reducing reliance on assistance.
In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years. Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized. This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes. Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter. This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
