Gainful Employment in Home Economics; Phase I, An Assessment of the Occupational Opportunities in the State of Florida Utilizing Knowledge and Skills Derived from the Field of Home Economics.
Ridley, Agnes Fenster
The first phase of this three-phase study focused on identifying occupations (job titles), projecting employment and employment opportunities, determining employment qualifications, and identifying clusters of technical occupations and attendant competencies. Data were obtained from 814 questionnaires completed during 483 interviews conducted with business and industry personnel: 34 for child care, 113 for foods, 161 for clothing and textiles, and 175 for housing and home furnishings. The interviews yielded employment qualifications and opportunities for 69 specific job titles. Employment data included 5,347 full-time and 2,143 part-time employees. Increased employment was anticipated in approximately 50 percent of the job titles. Clusters of job titles requiring common competencies are presented in chart form. A bibliography, questionnaires, and an interview guide are appended. Phases II and III are available as VT 010 022 and VT 010 023, respectively. (CH)
