A STUDY OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE EMPLOYMENT SERVICE ACTIVE FILE AND UNEMPLOYMENT, GREENSBORO - HIGH POINT AREA.
North Carolina Employment Security Commission, Raleigh.
THE PURPOSES OF THE STUDY WERE TO (1) EXAMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN UNEMPLOYMENT AND THE ACTIVE FILE WHICH IS COMPOSED OF JOB APPLICATION FORMS LESS THAN 30 DAYS OLD, (2) DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH PERSONS HAVE REGISTERED IN MORE THAN ONE EMPLOYMENT SERVICE OFFICE IN AN AREA, (3) MEASURE THE EXTENT OF REGISTRATION BY PERSONS NOT LIVING IN THE LOCAL OFFICE AREA, (4) EXAMINE FACTORS RELATING TO THE USE OF THE ACTIVE FILE AS AN ECONOMIC INDICATOR, ESPECIALLY IN MEASURING THE NUMBER OF UNEMPLOYED WORKERS IN AN AREA, AND (5) DETERMINE THE INTEREST OF ALL ACTIVELY REGISTERED APPLICANTS IN OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS. OF THE 3,059 MID-JANUARY APPLICANTS AT BOTH THE GREENSBORO AND HIGH POINT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE OFFICES, 2,182 RESPONDED TO A QUESTIONNAIRE, 90 WERE CONTACTED BY TELEPHONE, AND 40 WERE INCLUDED IN THE STUDY ON THE BASIS OF INFORMATION FROM UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CLAIMS. FINDINGS INCLUDED -- (1) DUAL REGISTRATIONS WERE INSIGNIFICANT, (2) WITH 54 PERCENT OF THOSE IN THE FILE EITHER EMPLOYED OR NOT IN THE LABOR FORCE, AND 46 PERCENT UNEMPLOYED, THE ACTIVE FILE WOULD NOT SERVE AS A RELIABLE INDICATOR OF THE AVAILABLE UNEMPLOYED IN AN AREA, (3) BECAUSE OF A LACK OF AN ACTUAL UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURE, NO RELATIONSHIP COULD BE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN THE ACTIVE FILE UNEMPLOYMENT AND TOTAL UNEMPLOYMENT, (4) THE ACTIVE FILE WOULD NOT SERVE AS A GOOD BASIS FOR MEASURING AREA UNEMPLOYMENT WITHOUT FIRST ELIMINATING OUT-OF-AREA RESIDENTS FROM THE FILE, AND (5) ONLY ABOUT 12 PERCENT OF THE ACTIVELY REGISTERED APPLICANTS APPEARED TO BE SINCERELY INTERESTED IN OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING. AN APPENDIX INCLUDES A MONETARY ELIGIBILITY STUDY OF UNEMPLOYED APPLICANTS WHO DID NOT FILE UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CLAIMS. (ET)
