This study examines the relationship between the personal characteristics of dislocated workers and commitment to the Dislocated Worker Retraining Program in Savannah, Georgia. Log-linear modeling techniques are employed to explore the various associations and interactions of sex, race, age, education, wage, occupation, family status, and number of children with commitment to an individual training program sponsored by JTPA. The odds on commitment to training and the odds' ratios between statistically significant associations revealed in various models are examined. The results show that sex, education, wage, age, and occupation have a direct effect on rates of commitment to training and that the nature of these associations varies according to race, sex, wage, education, and family status.
