SYMPOSIUM ON FORECASTING OF MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS. (WASHINGTON, D.C., JUNE 23-25, 1966).
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. International Manpower Inst.
FORTY-TWO SCHOLARS, EXPERTS, AND TECHNICIANS WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE CONDUCT OF MANPOWER FORECASTING PROGRAMS MET TO EXCHANGE AND SYNTHESIZE IDEAS ABOUT FORECASTING MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. PAPERS PRESENTED WERE--(1) "THE INDUSTRY-OCCUPATIONAL MATRIX APPROACH" BY HAROLD GOLDSTEIN, (2) "INTERNATIONAL COMPARISONS OF INDUSTRY-OCCUPATIONAL STRUCTURE" BY MORRIS A. HOROWITZ, (3) "A SYSTEMS ANALYSIS APPROACH TO HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT PLANNING" BY FREDERICK HARBISON, (4) "FORECASTING EDUCATIONAL NEEDS FOR ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT" BY HERBERT PARNES, (5) "THE MANPOWER SKILL SURVEY AND LABOR AREA DEMAND ANALYSIS" BY VLADIMIR D. CHAVRID, AND (6) "COMMENTARIES ON THE APPLICATION OF FORECASTING TECHNIQUES TO DEVELOPING COUNTRIES" BY JOSHUA LEVINE AND OTHERS. E.C. MCVOY, IN SUMMARIZING THE PROCEEDINGS, CONCLUDED THAT APPROACHES TO FORECASTING, PROJECTING, OR ESTIMATING MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS VARY ACCORDING TO THE PURPOSE, THE DEGREE OF ECONOMIC PLANNING, THE AVAILABILITY AND RELIABILITY OF DATA, AND OTHER FACTORS. THERE IS NO ONE SUPERIOR TECHNIQUE FOR SUCH FORECASTING FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, BUT RATHER, ONE OR MORE OF SEVERAL COMPLEMENTARY APPROACHES SUCH AS LONG RANGE PROJECTIONS, INTERNATIONAL COMPARISON OF INDUSTRY-OCCUPATIONAL STRUCTURE, AND AREA SKILL SURVEY OF LABOR AREA DEMAND ANALYSIS COULD BE APPLIED. DISCUSSIONS OF THE SPEECHES ARE INCLUDED. (ET)
