1998 National Employer School-to-Work Supplemental
As part of its ongoing evaluation efforts, the National School-to-Work Office has sought to assess the impact of the 1994 School-to-Work Opportunities Act on the activities of private employers. The 1998 NES re-interviewed 1,000 establishments that participated in the 1997 survey. This instrument placed special emphasis on issues of importance to the School-to-Work Office. Respondents were asked about their participation in work-based learning, their need to provide remedial training to their employees, and their recruitment costs. The survey questions are included in this PDF document.

on Persistence and Attrition from the National Employer Survey
This paper uses data from the 1998 administration of the National Employer Survey (NES-98) to examine the impact of the 1994 School-to-Work Opportunities Act on private employers.

In addition, the paper examines several outcome measures: (1) the effect of participation on employers' recruitment costs; (2) the effect of participation on the provision of remedial training by private employers; and (3) the effect of participation on youth turnover rates.
