This paper presents data derived from the mandatory follow-up evaluation of Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) participants for the 13-week period following termination. Data cover the first three quarters of Program Year 89, that is, persons who terminated their involvement with JTPA between July 1, 1989 and April 30, 1990. It focuses on the Title IIA sample and encompasses interviews with 4,474 participants, 3,461 (77 percent) of whom had employment at some time in the 13 weeks following termination. Six data tables show: (1) the response rates for different sociodemographic groups in the Title IIA sample; (2) the proportion who worked at all in the 13-week period and who were still at their first job post-termination; (3) the percentages of people still with their first employer who had and who did not have health benefits available; (4) availability of health benefits by gender; (5) availability of health benefits by race; and (6) availability of health benefits by both gender and race. Narrative discussion of the tables and results is provided throughout. (YLB)
