Employment and Training Evaluation Report--1981.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Policy, Evaluation and Research.
This report summarizes findings and recommendations from Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) research, demonstrations, and evaluation conducted in FY 1980-81. Chapter 1 presents research, experimentation, and demonstration study findings for projects completed February 1980 through June 1981. Findings are grouped into three categories: economic and social issues, improvement of the employment and training system, and problems of the hard to employ. Chapter 2 contains the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) research and development plan for FY 1982, organized under four broad focuses: labor market trends and impacts, labor and the economy, training, and program improvement. Chapter 3 summarizes major findings of program evaluation studies completed from February 1980 through June 1981. The most significant new reports provide the first formal estimates of the net effects of CETA programs on participants' post-program earnings, and information on the post-program economic impact of the Job Corps program on its participants and that program's cost-benefit experience. Chapter 4 presents the ETA Evaluation Plan for FY 1982 with major emphases on effects of training programs, cost-effectiveness analyses, and new ETA initiatives. The appendix contains an annotated listing of Department of Labor research, demonstration, and evaluation projects completed February 1980 through June 1981. (YLB)
