Researchers working under the auspices of the Administrative Data Research and Evaluation (ADARE) Project are conducting a series of research and evaluation projects examining participation in, services provided through, and outcomes from the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and related federal programs in nine states. This paper reports on the net impacts, or "value-added," of WIA services on employment, earnings, and other outcomes of interest using administrative data from seven of the nine ADARE states: Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, Texas and Washington State.
