The Benefits and Costs of JTPA Title II-A Programs: Key Findings from the National Job Training Partnership Act Study
This paper examines the benefits and costs of Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Title II-A programs for economically disadvantaged adults and out-of-school youths. It is based on a 21,000-person randomized experiment conducted within ongoing Title II-A programs at 16 local JTPA Service Delivery Areas (SDAs) from around the country. In the paper, we present the background and design of our study, describe the methodology used to estimate program impacts, present estimates of program impacts on earnings and educational attainment, and assess the overall success of the programs studied through a benefit-cost analysis.
