Community Occupational Survey: Final Report.
This study was undertaken to determine the occupational opportunities available for high school students and graduates in the Northwest R-I School District of House Springs, Missouri. Specific objectives of the survey were (1) to locate possible part-time and full-time career opportunities for youth and adults, (2) to secure occupational information for guidance purposes and curriculum revision, (3) to determine the employers' interest in adult education, and (4) to secure information for industrial and community planning. Eighty-eight and one-half percent of the businesses in the school district responded to the survey questions through personal interviews. The findings show a concentration of employment opportunities in distributive occupations (70.8) and in trade and industrial occupations (14.6). Also, it was found that there are possibly 1,171 vacancies each year due to normal employee turnover and that the employers in the school district anticipate hiring 1,192 new employees during the next year. (The complete community occupations survey, including the survey instrument, is appended.) (LRA)
