National Evaluation of the Welfare-to-Work Grants Program: Final Report. Industry and Occupation

09/01/2004

WtW enrollees were most frequently employed in office and administrative support, sales, and personal care and services occupations. These were the three most common occupations in five of the study sites, and they were among the five most common occupations in nine sites (Appendix Exhibit B.5).

About half or more of the principal jobs held by employed enrollees in nine of the study sites were in service industries, primarily business, health, and social services (Appendix Exhibit B.6). The industries in which WtW enrollees worked likely reflect both the industrial base of the local economies and the job placement strategies of the WtW programs.
