EDUCATION AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING OF TEC CLAIMANTS.
Indiana State Employment Security Div., Indianapolis.
TO COLLECT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS, FAMILY STATUS, EDUCATION AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING, WORK HISTORY, AND UNEMPLOYMENT EXPERIENCE OF TEMPORARY EXTENDED UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION (TEC) CLAIMANTS IN INDIANA, A QUESTIONNAIRE-INTERVIEW WAS ADMINISTERED TO A 5 PERCENT SAMPLE OF PERSONS FILING CLAIMS DURING 3 SELECTED WEEKS, SEPTEMBER 18-23, 1961, JANUARY 15-20, 1962, AND APRIL 16-21, 1962. A HIGH PROPORTION OF LONG DURATION CLAIMANTS AND PENSIONERS WAS REPRESENTED. PRIMARY EARNERS AND MARRIED SECONDARY EARNERS ACCOUNTED FOR 70 PERCENT OF ALL CLAIMANTS. THE CLAIMANTS HAD CONSIDERABLY LESS FORMAL EDUCATION THAN THE STATE'S RESIDENT POPULATION, ONLY ONE-THIRD HAVING FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL. ONE-FOURTH OF THE MALE CLAIMANTS COMPARED TO ALMOST ONE-HALF OF THE WOMEN CLAIMANTS FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL, BUT OVER 90 PERCENT OF THE CLAIMANTS UNDER AGE 25 ATTENDED HIGH SCHOOL. FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, ONE CLAIMANT IN SIX HAD SOME VOCATIONAL TRAINING. THREE-FOURTHS OF THE MEN HAD BEEN TRAINED IN INDUSTRIAL OR SERVICE OCCUPATIONS AND THE SAME PROPORTION OF THE WOMEN IN CLERICAL OCCUPATIONS. YOUNG MEN SEEMED TO BE THE GROUP MOST RECEPTIVE TO VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND TO HAVE TRAINED IN FIELDS GENERALLY THOUGHT TO HAVE THE MOST PROMISE IN THE FUTURE. THERE WAS A DEFINITE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN LENGTH OF SCHOOLING AND WORK PATTERNS. CLAIMANTS, PARTICULARLY WOMEN, WITH THE LEAST SCHOOLING GENERALLY TENDED TO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE MOST UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE PAST 3 YEARS. (WB)
