Review of JTPA Participant Characteristics and Program Outcomes for Program Years 1984 through 1989. JTQS Special Paper No. 10.
Westat, Inc., Rockville, MD.
This publication presents summary data on participants in programs operated under Title IIA or Title III of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) during the first 6 complete program years of their operation. Data are from the Job Training Quarterly Survey. The data describe socioeconomic characteristics of the terminees, some information on public benefits received at program entry, and brief work histories. Other data detail length of stay in the program, activities/services received while in the program, and reasons for termination. For those terminees placed in employment, wages and hours are available. A brief narrative section describes a number of the more noteworthy trends: a gradual increase in the proportion of females over the 6-year period; a longer length of stay in Title IIA programs; proportionally more Title IIA youth under age 19; and fewer high school graduates entering Title IIA programs. Part 2 contains tables 1-83 and covers Title IIA terminees. Part 3 contains tables 84-107 and relates to terminees from Title III. The tables provide distributions of terminees by selected characteristics and selected descriptors of the program and status at termination (outcomes). The selected characteristics are primarily demographic (age, race, sex, education) but also include selected measures of economic needs. The program outcome characteristics are program activity, length of stay in JTPA, rates of placement in jobs, and wage at placement. Data are provided for various sets of major subgroups. (YLB)
