SUBJECT : National Job Corps Study: Report on the Process Analysis

 

  1. Purpose. To announce the publication and distribution of National Job Corps Study: Report on the Process Analysis.

  2. Background. This report is the first of a series of reports on the National Job Corps Study. The National Job Corps Study is being conducted by Mathematica Policy Research, Inc. under contract with the Employment and Training Administration. Its purpose is to measure the effects of Job Corps participation on students' post-program earnings and related outcomes.

    The process report provides a description of the Job Corps program model and how it was operating in 1996. Thus, it describes the context in which the evaluation was conducted. It should be noted that many of the issues raised in the process analysis are being addressed as Job Corps implements the new Workforce Investment Act. Nevertheless, the report should inform and educate policymakers and practitioners about the Job Corps program model.

    The next report will detail employment and earnings of Job Corps students and controls during the 30 months following random assignment. A subsequent report will describe the benefits and costs of the program at 48 months after random assignment. A conclusive assessment of Job Corps' effectiveness will not be available until the 48-month report is completed.

  3. Distribution. Copies of this report have been distributed under separate cover to all addressees. Additional copies are available through ETA Regional Offices.

  4. Inquiries. Questions and comments or suggestions should be addressed to: Daniel Ryan, Office of Policy and Research, Employment and Training Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N5637, 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20210.
