There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  The Green Jobs and Health Care Impact Evaluation: Special Topic Paper on Standard Error Estimation in Evaluations with No-Shows
Release Date :
  January 18, 2017
Abstract :

This report examines treatment group members in randomized experiments who may choose not to participate in program services despite being offered access to these services. In this paper, a comparison of alternative computations of the standard error of the treatment-on-the-treated (TOT) impact is conducted using three approaches (the Bloom correction, Instrumental Variables (IV), and the bootstrap, all of which are understood as "truth" from simulations) and both simulated data (where the “true” standard error is known) and real-world data from the GJ-HC Impact Evaluation.
