Registered Apprentices and Apprenticeship Programs in the U.S. Construction Industry between 1989 and 2003: An Examination of the AIMS, RAIS, and California Apprenticeship Agency Databases

  • Cihan Bilginsoy

This study is a descriptive statistical examination of apprenticeship training in the construction industry, based on the U.S. Department of Labor and California Apprenticeship Agency databases. It specifically addresses the following questions - What were the patterns of enrollment across states and occupations, and over time? How diverse were the registrations in terms of gender and ethnic/racial composition of apprentices? What were the completion and cancellation rates, and how do these vary by gender and ethnic racial groups? What were the differences between union-management joint and unilateral employer programs in terms of enrollments, occupational distribution, gender and ethnic/racial composition, completion and cancellation rates, and program size?
