Manpower Information for Urban Poverty Areas. Volume II, an Inventory and Appraisal of Local Data Resources in Philadelphia.
Levine, Louis; And Others
This second volume of a research report on manpower information availability compares alternative sources of manpower data in a poverty area of Philadelphia. The first volume recognizes the need for data, yet it ignores the statistical problems of comparability, comprehensiveness, and accessibility inherent in the agency records which were recommended as data sources. In this volume, both the contributions and the limitations of various data sources are analyzed. By focusing attention upon the data systems of large public agencies, such as educational and law enforcement services, the researchers found a vast quantity of untabulated data. The study reports great similarity between agencies, both in types of data gathered and in problems encountered. This indicates that a good potential exists for interagency cooperation to provide efficiently an improved data system. Volume I of this report is available as VT 011 114 in this issue. (BH)
