Navajo Manpower Survey.
Navajo Tribe, Window Rock, AZ.; Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Phoenix, AZ.; Arizona State Employment Service, Phoenix.
The Navajo Manpower Survey for 1967, conducted on a sample of Navajos 14 years of age and older living in the Navajo Reservation area, found high rates of unemployment and underemployment for the Navajos. Some of the other findings reported are a general lack of real work experience; an indication by 70% of the labor force members that they would not want to leave the reservation for employment; and the need for training and education to meet specific needs. Characteristics of the manpower resource are described in the document, along with the characteristics of the labor force in general and in terms of the employed and the non-employed. Also included is a section providing the summary and conclusions, as well as a section on implications for manpower policy. Appended to the report are information on the survey background, notes on the survey structure, and a copy of the questionnaire used. (PS)
