The main impact findings described in the report used a matched sample of UI claimants as the comparison group for TAA participants, with key outcomes measured through a follow-up survey. However, to test the robustness of the study’s conclusions, alternative samples and model specifications were used and data were drawn from alternative sources. In particular, as part of sensitivity analyses, we estimated impacts using matched samples of UI exhaustees and administrative UI wage records.
