Heterogeneous earnings effects of the job corps by gender: A translated quantile approach

Anthony Strittmatter ()

Labour Economics, 2019, vol. 61, issue C

Abstract: Several studies of the Job Corps tend to find more positive earnings effects for males than for females. This effect heterogeneity favouring males contrasts with the results of the majority of other training programmes’ evaluations. Applying the translated quantile approach of Bitler, Hoynes, and Domina (2014), I investigate a potential mechanism behind the surprising findings for the Job Corps. My results provide suggestive evidence that the effect of heterogeneity by gender operates through existing gender earnings inequality rather than Job Corps trainability differences.
