Project GATE (Growing America Through Entrepreneurship) was a random-assignment demonstration project designed to help public workforce system clients create, sustain or expand their own business. The cornerstone of the evaluation of Project GATE was random assignment. A total of 4,198 applicants to Project GATE were randomly assigned to either the program group or the control group. Members of the program group were offered GATE services; members of the control group were not. This dataset is the final data from the evaluation and includes administrative data from the six and eighteen month follow-ups and survey data from the six month, eighteen month, and sixty month follow-ups of program participants. The dataset (.dat) files are provided in ASCII and the program files to read the dataset are provided in SAS (.sas) and STATA (.dct).
