Primary Outcomes (end points)
The primary outcomes from administrative data are indicators for whether an individual is employed in each of the four quarters after random assignment; whether an individual has quarterly earnings above a certain threshold; and the level of quarterly earnings (with and without adjustments for outliers). The primary outcomes from the endline survey include measures of whether individuals believe they have a good idea of the types of jobs that are good matches for them, subjective well-being, financial security, depression, and anxiety. We also will construct measures of the expected utility from the occupation in which individuals are employed. Some individuals might not receive incentives to complete the endline survey, which could lower the reliability of these results. We will analyze these results using intent-to-treat analyses as well as treatment-on-the-treated analyses (where treated is defined as having spent a minimal amount of time on the site). We will use a data-driven approach to select control variables for some specifications. We also will address any imbalance in survey response rates between the treatment and control groups through a bounding exercise and randomized survey encouragement messages.
