NIT increased the number of adults pursuing continuing education in Seattle, Washington, and Denver.

"The NIT was shown to positively affect the academic test scores of children in some sites and increase high school completion rates by as much as 25% to 30% in others (Hanushek, 1986). It was further associated with an increase in the number of adults pursuing continuing education in Seattle, Washington, and Denver, Colorado (Levine et al., 2004). Similar positive effects on low birth rates, homeownership, health, and other indicators of well-being were documented."
