Department of Labor, Washington, DC. Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Development.
This document contains 36 tables that summarize some of the characteristics and experiences of persons who participated in training programs authorized under Titles IIA and III of the job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) during the first three quarters of program (PY) 1988. The data were obtained through the job Training Quarterly Survey (JTQS) and were extracted, for samples of program participants, from JTPA records maintained by the local program administrators. Some of the findings are as follows: (1) JTQS-estimated new enrollments in Title IIA decreased 5 percent during the first three quarters of PY 1988 compared to the sampe period 1 year earlier; (2) Title IIA participants were nearly identical for the first three quarters of both years (95 percent economically disadvantaged; 54 percent females; 47 percent minorities; 43 percent public assistance recipients; 37 percent under age 22; 29 percent school dropouts, and 58 percent high school graduates); (3) compared to the estimated JTPA-eligible population, Title IIA served relatively twice as many youth as well as larger proportions of blacks and high school graduates; (4) the average hourly wage of Title IIA terminees who entered employment increased from $4.82 to $5.02; (5) about 70 percent of enrollees completed Title IIA programs; (6) compared to the eligible population of displaced workers, Title III served higher proportions of females, Hispanics, and persons aged 22-44, but smaller percentages of whites and workers who were 45 and older; and (7) the average hourly wage of $7.43 for PY 1988 Title III terminees was unchanged from the year before.
