Update of the Community Advantage Panel Survey (CAPS) data collection activities that occurred in 2010 and plans for data collection in 2011.

We provide an update of the Community Advantage Panel Survey (CAPS) data collection activities that occurred in 2010 and describe our data collection plans for 2011.

We first summarize the CAPS sampling strategy and data collection progress and then consider upcoming survey plans, attrition concerns, and the extent to which 2010 survey completers are representative of baseline respondents and other Self-Help Community Advantage Program (CAP) borrowers.
