Employment Opportunities in Applied Biological and Agricultural Occupations in the Metropolitan Area of Chicago.
Thomas, Hollie B.; Neavill, Arthur
Based on questionnaire data collected from a sample of employers, this phase of a larger research project ascertained employment opportunities in the area of applied biological and agricultural occupations in the metropolitan area of Chicago. Specific fields of business surveyed by stratified random sample were animal care, animal health care, arboriculture, floriculture, golf course related, landscaping, nursery and lawn care, small engine sales and service, and recreation. The data were analyzed by summing the number of job opportunities in each job title and projecting the data from the sample to estimate its total job opportunities in the population. A major conclusion of the study was that ample job opportunities exist in the Chicago area to merit the implementation of vocational programs in applied biological and agricultural occupations. (JS)
