Louisiana Occupational Training Information System. Phase V, Net Manpower Needs, 1979.
Louisiana Tech Univ., Ruston, Coll. of Administration and Business.
The Louisiana Occupational Training Information System (LOTIS) has provided a series of analyses of current employment, demand for replacement personnel, and supply of workers in each state planning district and for each occupational category. Phase five of LOTIS gathered data for basically all non-agricultural workers in the state. The survey sample was stratified by Standard Industrial Classification, by firm size, and by economic development district. Firms within each stratification were selected randomly, with approximately 1,200 business firms and various federal, state, and local government agencies being included. Current employment and one-year demand data were obtained through mail questionnaires, telephone interviews, and in-person contacts. These data were provided by individual business firms, professional certification boards, licensing boards, trade association directories, informal trade suppliers, union officials, federal agencies, state agencies, and local government agencies. Supply data were provided by the Louisiana State Department of Vocational Education. After employment components were determined, complete inventories were used to validate the sampling methodology. The preliminary results were used by the Vocational Education Division as a part of the 1979-80 State Plan. (The final results are presented and analyzed in this report.) (BM)
