This project collected survey data on the long-term outcomes of youth whose families participated in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's Moving to Opportunity (MTO) program, in which families were randomly assigned to receive one of two types of housing vouchers or to a control group. The data pertain to youth who were aged 10-20 in 2007 and who were interviewed 10 to 15 years after their families enrolled in the program. The project collected both survey data and longitudinal administrative data on schooling, employment, and delinquency for MTO youth.
