ASPE 50-Year Trends Report 2016

Education and job training are critical to anti-poverty efforts. A growing body of evidence shows that the more closely education or training aligns with the requirements of a real job or occupation, the better the employment results for training participants.

A recent evaluation of sectoral training programs found that participants who received a comprehensive set of services were more likely to be employed, worked significantly more hours, and earned 18 percent more than members of a control group.

Anti-poverty strategies including early childhood interventions, job-driven training, and place-based initiatives bring critical research results to bear on the nation’s continued progress in reducing poverty among at-risk and disadvantaged populations.

Strategies like these, coupled with a safety net that adequately helps Americans through rough patches, are important to ensure vulnerable individuals can attain economic self-sufficiency for themselves and their children, and that the next 50-year report will show even more progress.
