Number 34: Evaluation of income management in the Northern Territory

This paper is an evaluation of the income management program introduced as part of the Northern Territory Emergency Response that was announced in June 2007. The report is structured around key evaluation questions exploring how well the income management program was implemented and administered, and whether it was achieving its objectives. The evaluation used quantitative data from a client survey and qualitative data from focus groups of key stakeholders, as well as telephone surveys of community store operators, a survey of Government Business Managers and a qualitative report on community consultations.

This paper was released in draft form on the FaHCSIA website in 2009.
