Abstract: This study has as its purpose the evaluation of Manpower Development Training programs at the local level. The study is built around four points to determine whether or not: (1) there were significant increases in the graduates' incomes after training; (2) there were significant reductions in unemployment in the tri-county area during the period covered by the study; (3) there were significant reductions in the number of welfare payments in the tri-county area during the period covered by the study; and (4) there was a significant difference in the expected length of the pay-back period of one year or less. Data were collected from several sources for the purpose of testing the null hypotheses. Data were collected from graduates of Manpower Training programs at Richmond Technical Institute, from the student records, from the Manpower Administration of the United States Department of Labor, from the North Carolina Employment Security Commission offices in Raleigh and Rockingham, and from the Director of the Richmond County Department of Social Services, from audit reports of individual Manpower Training programs, and from printed sources. The data were treated statistically to determine whether or not significant differences had occurred. For the first three hypotheses, "t" scores were computed; the chi-square test of differences was used to determine the presence of significant differences for the fourth hypothesis. Results of the computations were presented in narrative and in tabular form.
