A Longitudinal Study of Out-of-School NYC-2 Programs in Four Cities. Report of Phase II (Research Sites and Enrollee Characteristics).
Walther, Regis H.; And Others
An experimental study group was constituted by placing new Neighborhood Youth Corps (NYC)-2 enrollees as they enrolled until N's of approximately 125 subjects in each of four sites (Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, and St. Louis) were achieved. This group was predominantly black, under eighteen years of age, of less than 10th grade education, and without any vocational preparation. Half the study subjects were young women, about half of whom were mothers. Site study groups are compared in terms of race and sex, and the association of such characteristics as schooling and the provision of day care with race and sex is a factor in differential site results with respect to other enrollee characteristics and to program operations.
