Greenberg, David H.; Michalopoulos, Charles; Robins, Philip K.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v57 n1 p31-53 Oct 2003
Meta-analysis was conducted on 31 evaluations of 15 government-sponsored training programs for disadvantaged groups, 1964-1998. Earnings effects were largest for women, modest for men, and negligible for youth. Skills training increased earnings; basic education was not effective. No evidence was found that more expensive programs performed better. (Contains 23 references.) (SK)
