Targeting Employment Services

This volume includes the papers and proceedings of a conference on the topic of “Targeting Employment Services,” which was held in Kalamazoo, Michigan, from April 29 to May 1, 1999. The conference was jointly sponsored by the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research and the U.S. Department of Labor. The aim of the conference was to review recent developments in targeting of employment services and to consider the possible application of targeting to other areas of employment policy. The conference comprised the presentation and discussion of research papers as well as panel discussions. Presenters, panelists, discussants, and attendees at the conference included a rich mix of scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. As editors of this conference volume, we have tried to ensure that the material is presented in a way that is accessible to a broad audience.
