EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT OF JOBSEEKERS REGISTERED FOR EMPLOYMENT WITH THE OHIO STATE EMPLOYMENT SERVICE, APRIL 25, 1965.
DRAKE, JAMES W.; AND OTHERS
A SURVEY OF PERSONS SEEKING EMPLOYMENT THROUGH EVERY PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT OFFICE IN OHIO WAS DESIGNED TO UPDATE AND COMPARE FINDINGS WITH RESULTS OF A SIMILAR STUDY CONDUCTED IN 1962. TOTAL JOBSEEKERS REGISTERED FOR EMPLOYMENT IN 1965 NUMBERED 132,350. IN 1962, THE TOTAL WAS 215,477. THE DECLINE OF 39 PERCENT WAS DUE IN PART TO THE SHORTER VALIDITY PERIOD (TIME WITHIN WHICH APPLICANTS MUST REVISIT THE LOCAL OFFICE TO INDICATE CONTINUED AVAILABILITY) FOR THE 1965 COUNT IN 22 LOCAL OFFICES. MORE IMPORTANT, HOWEVER, WERE GENERALLY IMPROVED EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES. NEARLY 62 PERCENT OF THE JOBSEEKERS WERE NOT HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES IN 1962, COMPARED WITH 60 PERCENT IN 1965. AMONG THE YOUTH UNDER 20, THE PROPORTION WHO HAD NOT FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL ROSE FROM 49 TO 54 PERCENT BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTS. JOBSEEKERS UNDER 20 TOTALED 14,394 IN 1962 AND 16,971 IN 1965, REPRESENTING AN 18 PERCENT INCREASE. THIS WAS THE ONLY AGE GROUP WHOSE TOTAL DID NOT SHOW A SUBSTANTIAL DECLINE BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTS. OF THE TOTAL REGISTERED, ONE OUT OF FOUR HAD NO FORMAL EDUCATION BEYOND THE EIGHTH GRADE, THREE OUT OF FIVE HAD NO HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, ONE-THIRD HAD FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL BUT DID NOT GO ON TO COLLEGE, AND FEWER THAN ONE OUT OF 12 HAD SOME COLLEGE TRAINING. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES TABLES OF DATA FOR EACH COUNTY IN OHIO WITH THE EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT OF REGISTERED JOBSEEKERS BY OCCUPATIONAL AND AGE GROUP IN 1962 AND 1965. (PS)
