Job Training Partnership Act:
Long-Term Earnings and Employment Outcomes
HEHS-96-40: Published: Mar 4, 1996. Publicly Released: Apr 3, 1996.
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO compared the long-term earnings and employment rates for Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) participants with those for non-participants.
GAO found that: (1) JTPA participants receiving training had significantly higher earnings and employment rates than non-participants during the early stages of the program; and (2) annual earnings and employment rates for adult and youth JTPA participants increased after 5 years of participation, but the differences were not statistically significant.
