The Allocation of Training Resources in the WIN Program. Final Report.
Schiller, Bradley R.
The basic objective of the study was to determine whether discrimination is operative in the training component of the WIN program, and to develop and utilize models for measuring its dimensions. The study concludes that no evidence of racial discrimination in WIN training allocations is observable but substantial evidence exists that women are not being referred to WIN training slots on the same basis as men, even after taking account of previous background and that the origin of the discrimination is not clear. These conclusions were reached after a statistical model was formulated for analyzing the WIN employability process as applied to client data collected through personal interviews at 29 urban WIN sites during the summer and fall of 1971.
