This research report examines the outcomes of the summer 2006 job market for the teenagers of the nation utilizing newly released CPS survey public use files and published data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report will begin by examining the summer 2006 employment rate for all teens (16-19), compare the summer 2006 employment rates of teens with those of previous summers over the past two decades, and analyze variations in teen employment rates across gender, race-ethnic, and household income groups. The final two sections of the paper will provide estimates of the number of unutilized and underutilized teens in the past summer and discuss the implications of these findings for the design and operation of future JAG programs including the multi-year and senior year programs.
