Examples of programs to be considered are : the Pennsylvania Tax Forgiveness Program, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Food Stamps, Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, Medicaid, and the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

The second half of the semester will be devoted to analyses of specific programs or sets of programs. Students will learn how to use a software system designed for the analysis of program interactions. Each student will be expected to analyze a particular program or policy related problem using appropriate methodology.
