In an effort to document and learn about the effect that sectoral employment development programs have on the income and employment opportunities of poor Americans, SEDLP’s Participant Study gathers extensive pre- and post-training information from a 732 person sample. This publication summarizes important demographic, economic, and employment characteristics that were collected during the study’s baseline survey. Preliminary post-training employment and earnings data are also presented. This series should be especially useful to: practitioners designing training programs; policy makers shaping our workforce development system; and researchers interested in learning more about innovative approaches to workforce development.
