Definition

Older Youth: Earnings Change in Six Months: Definition


  • Wage records ONLY
    • Exclude if supplemental data used to determine employment:
      • in either the 1st or 3rd quarter after exit
    • Exclude if pre-program quarters too far back to get data

  • Exclude older youth in advanced training/postsecondary education (but not employed) in 3rd quarter after exit

 

Logic

Older Youth: Earnings Change in Six Months: Logic*


The performance measure specification for the Older Youth Earnings Change in Six Months measure as published in DOL's Workforce Investment Act Annual Report: General Reporting Instructions and ETA Form 9091, Revised 2006.

* Erroneous results would occur if the logic of this measure, as outlined below, was followed exactly as published. These results occur because the logic does not explicitly exclude participants with 999999.99 in the 2nd Quarter Post Exit Earnings; therefore, the logic for calculating this measure within Performance Matters has been modified to exclude those participants with 999999.99 in the 2nd Quarter Post Exit Earnings. If you have any questions/concerns regarding this issue, please contact FutureWork Systems, 1-800-448-2266.
