The Impact of Public and Private Job Training in Colombia
In this working paper, the authors present various matching estimators of the impact on earnings for individuals who attended public and private job training programs in Colombia, namely the National Learning Service (SENA). The authors estimate propensity scores by controlling for the wide variety of personal and socioeconomic background variables of those individuals, measuring the effect of training disaggregated by type of institution (private, SENA, or other public programs), time (short and long-term) and gender.
