By Sarah Culshaw, Stuart Deaton and Ann Purvis

This research was commissioned by the Labour Market Measures Project within Performance Measurement and Analysis Division. The Off-Flows Potentially to Employment (OPtE) measure forms part of a project looking at potential measures to enable Jobcentre Plus to influence labour market performance at an operational level. The research aimed to determine whether an OPtE measure was feasible, workable and could be effectively operationalised as a Jobcentre Plus performance measure. The research comprises qualitative evaluation with staff in OPtE pilot districts to ascertain the suitability of the measure. Pre-pilot work and Wave One OPtE work was conducted between April and September 2008. Following revisions to the OPtE data, the pilots were relaunched in April 2009, and Wave Two fieldwork took place in July and August 2009.
