Using Labor Market Data for Program Evaluation

July 10, 2018

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Using Labor Market Information data, such as administrative and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, this study evaluates the benefits of training programs in DC from 2009 to 2015.

Using multivariate models such as logistic regressions and treatment effects, this study will show the impact of trainings provided to the Department of Employment Services (DOES) participants compared to those who did not take any trainings in terms of employment, consecutives quarter employment and quarterly wages.

Based on the findings, this study suggests some policy implications in order to enhance trainings programs in the District.
