Vocational education programs must provide for the development of competencies required by the labor market. Long-range planning is required to offset the time lags inherent in program development. This report forecasts the potential total vocational education enrollment in a statewide comprehensive school system and the potential enrollment in selected occupations based on projections of the labor force composition. The analysis of the data compares labor force trends to enrollment trends, enrollment trends to output trends, and employed output trends to estimated demand trends. Sample data work sheets and data sources are included. (Author/BH)
