The Smaller Communities Services Program, as noted, is a means of expanding the services of the Oregon Department of Employment to rural and low-income areas in the state. This report is a summary of program findings in rural Jefferson County, Oregon, and is the result of field work performed over a 4-month period by a mobile team composed of 2 supervisors, 1 counselor, 1 labor analyst, and 6 temporary personnel hired in Jefferson County. The field work consisted of contacting all prospective employers in the county to ascertain, for example, estimates of employment in each occupation for July 1970 and July 1973; concurrently, a survey was made which furnished human resource data from 2,713 households. In the document, tables of statistics and accompanying narrative provide information on population trends; agricultural income trends; distribution of wage and salary employment by occupational groups within industry division; distribution of employment by industry, sex, and age groups (nonagricultural wage and salary workers only); labor force status (1968); nonagricultural employment; educational levels; and vocational training. All data on manpower, along with data used to set up occupational profiles of the labor force, are to be retained by the Oregon Department of Employment. (EL)
