I received approvals from the Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) at my university and CCMRIS as a part of this research project. Part of this approval process resulted in CCMRIS granting me a waiver of informed consent for the use of client Social Security Numbers (SSNs) in this research. After using the SSNs to match each client to their labor market histories in Maine, I deleted all identifying information, including SSNs, from the data set. The confidentiality protocols in place ensured that the risks for any refugee included in this data set were minimal, probably no greater than the risks faced in everyday life.
