LOCAL MANPOWER DATA PROGRAMS, AN ANALYSIS.
CHO-KIN, LEUNG; STEIN, BRUNO
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO EXAMINE THE PROFUSION OF LOCAL AND REGIONAL MANPOWER STUDIES SO COMMUNITIES SEEKING TO UNDERTAKE MANPOWER STUDIES COULD LEARN FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF OTHERS. OVER 300 MANPOWER STUDIES WERE EXAMINED AND CLASSIFIED AS -- (1) MANPOWER REQUIREMENT SURVEYS, (2) POTENTIAL LABOR FORCE SURVEYS, (3) WAGE SURVEYS, (4) TECHNOLOGICAL AND STRUCTURAL CHANGE IMPACT STUDIES, (5) STUDIES OF LONG TERM UNEMPLOYED, (6) ECONOMIC BASE REPORTS, (7) STATE AND OVERALL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLANS, AND (8) MISCELLANEOUS STUDIES. SOME CONCLUSIONS WERE -- (1) DEMAND ESTIMATES FROM SAMPLED EMPLOYERS ARE DIFFICULT UNLESS SAMPLES ARE WELL CONSTRUCTED AND COOPERATION WITH DATA SOURCES IS ACHIEVED, (2) HOUSEHOLD SURVEYS APPEAR TO BE THE MOST USEFUL TOOL TO USE FOR LABOR SUPPLY INFORMATION, (3) TREATMENT OF MOBILITY TENDS TO BE NAIVE, (4) WAGE DATA ARE EASILY OBTAINED ONCE THE DIFFICULTIES OF COSTING FRINGE BENEFITS ARE OVERCOME, AND (5) SAMPLES OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE STUDIES WERE POOR. A BIBLIOGRAPHY LISTS ALL OF THE STUDIES REVIEWED AND DISCUSSED. (EM)
