Detail

By Jan Shury, Lorna Adams, Sarah Fish and Charlie Taylor

This research was commissioned by the Labour Market Measures Project within Performance Measurement and Analysis Division. The research aims to test the accuracy of the Off-Flows Potentially to Employment (OPtE) measure in identifying customers who have flowed off benefit and into work. A secondary aim of the research was to assess whether utilising an off-flow rate-based measure would encourage advisers to place unreasonable pressure on customers to leave the register. The research also covers an early destinations survey which was carried out on the wave one OPtE data, before revisions to the code were made.
