Manpower in Oklahoma: Health Occupations.
In a survey of Oklahoma business designed to develop occupational data for the present and future, 300 occupations were selected and 11 schedules prepared to reflect various types of firms. The schedule concerning medical and other health services facilities was sent to nearly 200 firms and institutions and usable information was received from almost 80 percent. The information in this publication has been inflated and adjusted to agree with the published industry total. Data on 22 medical occupations and 27 other jobs found in medical facilities are presented along with information on total employment in the health area and an overall view of national trends. Medical employers predicted an 11.1 percent increase in employment by June 1969 over the same month of 1967. This considerably exceeded the 7.7 percent growth forecast for total wage and salary employment statewide. The medical gain by 1969 would provide 6,400 new jobs and raise the number of medical wage and salary workers to 63,800. By 1972, the 20.7 percent employment growth expected would raise the medical job count to 69,300 and provide 11,900 new positions. Extensive data are presented in tabular form. (JK)
