Recommendations to HUD on whether additional survey cycles should be conducted in Site I of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment, Brown County, Wisconsin. Three cycles have been completed there, and although some important experimental purposes are served by the data in hand, conclusions based on only 18 months of postenrollment data could be attacked as inadequate or misleading. RAND recommends conducting the fourth cycle as the final survey wave, thus extending the analysis period by 67 percent. Data from the fourth cycle would cover a year in which the number of allowance recipients increased by 43 percent and the total allowance payments by 70 percent. Additional data for Site I would also help with analysis of events in Site II (St. Joseph County, Indiana) and with other housing policy research.
