One of two reports from the Evaluation of the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program provide impact estimates, for both participants and nonparticipants, of the TAA program under the 2002 amendments. Estimated impacts are provided in the reports on: 1) the receipt of re-employment and training services, 2) employment and earnings, 3) characteristics of jobs (including hourly wages and health benefits), and 4) health and family status. The report on estimated impacts for participants includes many additional sensitivity analyses, including those for employment and earnings for different subgroups, such as by age and service receipt (including training), as well as using different specifications of the comparison group, including one of a matched group of just UI exhaustees.
