McDaniel, Sue; Riley, Dee Ann
Management information system (MIS) data about women's participation in Missouri's job training system funded under Title II-A of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) in program year 1992 were analyzed. Analysis of data from Missouri's 15 service delivery areas (SDAs) established the following: 75% of the state's 4,598 female JTPA participants were white and 23% were black; 60% were single parents; 40% were receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), 75% had at least a high school diploma, 25% were high school dropouts; 71% were new participants; 72% were terminated from training programs, 44% entered unsubsidized employment; 51% participated in classroom occupational training; 17% participated in on-the-job training; and 13% participated in job search. The analysis also established that more females than males participated in job training programs and that male graduates averaged $0.23 more per hour than females. (This report contains MIS data and 38 tables/figures detailing the participation of women in Missouri's job training system in each of the state's 15 SDAs and throughout the state as a whole. Also included are recommendations, a discussion of the Missouri Council of Women's Economic Development and Training's activities in FY92, and information on women in the U.S. work force.) (MN)
