Net Impact Estimates for Services Provided through the Workforce Investment Act

Net Impact Estimates for Services Provided through the Workforce Investment Act

October 2005
Publication Type:
Report

Abstract:
This report used quasi-experimental evaluation techniques to estimate the impacts of Workforce Investment Act (WIA) workforce development services on employment, earnings, and other outcomes of interest in seven states. We found that receipt of any WIA services was associated with increased employment and earnings, and reduced participation in public assistance programs. We also found that receipt of training was associated with positive but smaller impacts, relative to receipt of other WIA services. Finally, impacts tended to be larger for dislocated workers than for adults, and larger among women than in men. Thus, the WIA program appears to be effective in terms of employment and earnings impacts for participants.
