Whatever Happened to What's His Name. A Follow-Up Survey of Inactive Applicants in the Raleigh, N.C. Area.
North Carolina Employment Security Commission, Raleigh. Job Market Research Center.
The North Carolina Employment Security Commission (ESC) conducted a followup study of the 986 State applicants deactivated during August 1968 and 6 months later to ascertain the effectiveness of the program. This report is concerned primarily with the 6-month followup. The 586 applicants who responded to the first questionnaire were mailed the followup survey. A total of 494 persons after 1 month and 464 after 6 months were still in the labor force. About two-thirds of the respondents were employed at the time of both studies. The unemployment rate was 21.7 in August and 14.2 percent 6 months later, reflecting the fact that 30 persons in the group dropped out of the labor force. For both the 1- and 6-month followup studies, the increase in the mean weekly earnings for those applicants who received services was greater than the gain in the mean weekly earnings of those applicants who did not receive services. A report on the 1-month followup study is available as MP 000 766. (BC)
