An Economic Analysis of the Job Corps.
Engleman, Stephen Robert
This dissertation considered the experience of various groups that participated in the Job Corps both during and after their stay in Job Corps. Considerable differences were found between the various race/age and race/religion groups considered. All groups, however, received benefits in excess of costs, with the Benefit/Cost ratios found ranging from 1.96 for the older non-whites to 3.72 for the older whites. The dissertation also includes extensive analyses of the determinants of length of stay in the program, as well as the determinants of post Job Corps earnings. Multiple regression analysis was the primary analytic tool utilized for these purposes. Also, a bibliography is included. (NTIS)
