The Right Tool for the Job: a Meta-Regression of Employment Strategies’ Effects on Different Outcomes

Publication Date: May 26, 2017


This brief uses a rigorous, quantitative approach known as meta-regression to look across all the studies included in the Employment Strategies for Low-Income Adults Evidence Review (ESER) to identify the employment and training interventions and strategies most likely to be effective in improving outcomes for low-income adults. It also identifies which are most effective for particular labor market outcomes and types of workers.

All of the employment and training interventions in this analysis are included in ESER’s online, searchable database that allows users to find, research, and see what the findings suggest about the effectiveness of each of these interventions.
