A TECHNIQUE FOR PROJECTION OF OCCUPATIONAL-EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR STATE EDUCATIONAL PLANNING AREAS.
MORSCH, WILLIAM C.
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE OCCUPATIONAL-EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS PROJECTION SYSTEM IS TO PROVIDE LONG-RANGE (10-YEAR) PROJECTIONS OF EDUCATIONAL NEEDS BASED ON ANTICIPATED LEVELS OF INDUSTRIAL EMPLOYMENT. THE SYSTEM WILL BE USED BY THE BUREAU OF ADULT AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND THE BUREAU OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN SELECTING PROGRAMS TO BE DEVELOPED OR PHASED OUT. AS A BASIS FOR PROJECTING EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, PHASE ONE OF THE PROGRAM WILL USE EMPLOYMENT PROJECTIONS FOR OCCUPATIONAL AREAS WHERE AGRICULTURAL, DISTRIBUTIVE, HEALTH OCCUPATIONS, HOME ECONOMICS, OFFICE OCCUPATIONS, TECHNICAL, AND TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION WOULD HAVE EQUIPPED PERSONS FOR JOBS. THESE EMPLOYMENT PROJECTIONS, PREPARED BY THE NATIONAL PLANNING ASSOCIATION, ARE BY STATE AND 82 SEPARATE METROPOLITAN REGIONS FOR THE YEARS 1970 AND 1975. METROPOLITAN AREAS WITHIN A STATE WILL BE USED AS EDUCATIONAL PLANNING AREAS AND THE REMAINDER OF THE STATE AS SEPARATE PLANNING AREA. EMPLOYMENT PROJECTIONS WILL BE ALLOCATED AMONG OCCUPATIONS ACCORDING TO COEFFICIENTS PRODUCED FROM THE 1960 CENSUS. FOR EDUCATIONAL PLANNING PURPOSES, THESE EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENTS MUST BE CONVERTED TO EDUCATIONAL EQUIVALENTS. THIS IS TO BE DONE WITH A CONVERSION MATRIX WHICH WILL MATCH EACH CENSUS OCCUPATION TO A STANDARDIZED EDUCATIONAL CATEGORY. A CONTINUING LIAISON WITH THE BUREAUS OF ADULT AND VOCATIONAL AND HIGHER EDUCATION IS PLANNED TO INSURE THAT THE SYSTEM WILL BE RESPONSIVE TO THEIR OPERATING REQUIREMENTS. (HC)
