There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Project GATE (Growing America Through Entrepreneurship) Final Evaluation Dataset

Project GATE was a random-assignment demonstration project designed to help public workforce system clients create, sustain or expand their own business. The cornerstone of the evaluation of Project GATE was random assignment. A total of 4,198 applicants to Project GATE were randomly assigned to either the program group or the control group. Members of the program group were offered GATE services; members of the control group were not. This dataset is the final data from the evaluation and includes administrative data from the six and eighteen month follow-ups and survey data from the six month, eighteen month, and sixty month follow-ups of program participants. The dataset (.dat) files are provided in ASCII and the program files to read the dataset are provided in SAS (.sas) and STATA (.dct).
