Title :
  The National JTPA Study: Title II-A Impacts on Earnings And Employment at 18 Months
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The National JTPA Study was commissioned by the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in 1986 to measure the impacts and costs of selected employment and training programs funded under Title II-A of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982, which is targeted to serve economically disadvantaged Americans. This report presents interim estimates of program impacts on the earnings and employment of adults and out-of-school youths in 16 local service delivery areas during the first 18 months after their acceptance into the program.

Estimates of longer term program impacts on earnings, employment, and welfare benefits, and an analysis of program costs and benefits, will appear in the final report of the study (forthcoming, from Abt Associates Inc.). A companion report on the study's implementation (Doolittle, forthcoming) describes the JTPA programs operated in the study sites and the types of JTPA-funded services provided to members of the study sample.
