Abstract

This paper provides estimates of the impact of CETA programs on participants' postprogram earnings using matched comparison groups developed from a "nearest-neighbor" matching technique. Our basic results indicate that CETA has a negative and statistically significant earnings impact for adult men, and a modest, but not statistically significant, positive earnings impact for adult women. This pattern, however, is quite sensitive to whether individuals without recent labor market attachment are included in the comparison group and to how close to the date of enrollment preprogram earnings are measured.
