This report is intended as a resource for the development and implementation of performance measurement in the asset-building field. It is divided by asset-building strategy: IDAs, financial education, housing and homeownership, and microenterprise. For each strategy, we review effective practices and possible outcomes, and suggest indicators for performance measurement. The indicators are grouped by possible outputs, intermediate outcomes, and end outcomes. These indicators reflect the diversity of asset programming. Depending upon the unique program context, administrators and researchers may select and apply the appropriate indicators.
