The purpose of this report is to better understand the characteristics of the population eligible for the 2002 provisions of TAA and its members’ experiences with the program. A descriptive analysis of survey data from the sample of TAA eligible workers, including both participants and nonparticipants, enables us to examine participation rates as well as reasons for participation and nonparticipation. The report provides information that will help us interpret program impact estimates in the future; it will also provide policymakers with information that can be used to assess and improve program implementation.
