This report is a technical supplement to the 36-month impact report for the Building Strong Families (BSF) evaluation (Wood et al. 2012). It provides additional detail about the research design (Chapter I), analytic methods (Chapter II), and variable construction (Chapters III, IV and V) that were used for the 36-month analysis. Chapter VI of this report provides a discussion of the subgroup analysis that was conducted. Chapter VII discusses the treatment-on-the-treated (TOT) impact analysis, an analysis of BSF's effects on couples who actually attended BSF group sessions. The full set of impact results generated as part of the 36-month analysis is included in the appendices of this volume. An earlier report and technical supplement examined the impact of BSF on couples' outcomes about 15 months after they applied for the program and provided results generated as a part of the 15-month impact analysis (Wood, McConnell et al. 2010; Wood, Moore et al. 2010). Restricted use data files and documentation are available through the Inter-University Consortium of Political and Social Research. (Author abstract)
