Using matched administrative data, this paper estimates the program effects of Minnesota's WIA Title I‐B Adult program to make two contributions to the literature. First, this paper applies a wide range of non‐experimental approaches and generates similar estimates of program effects that are consistently larger than most other evaluations. Second, comparing workers job seeking in 2007‐2008 with those job seeking in 2009‐2010 suggests that the workers job seeking in a growing job market experience more persistent program effects.
