11/01/2014 - 01/31/2016
Using quasi-experimental statistical matching technique, Upjohn Institute staff estimated the net impacts and cost and benefits of 11 workforce training programs. Outcomes of interest included employment, hours, wage rates, earnings, UI benefits, and TANF, SSI, Food Stamp, and Medicaid benefits. Two cohorts of program participants were examined: individuals who exited in 2010-2011 program year and during the 2012-2013 program year.
