A Development Program for Metropolitan Junior College, Kansas City. Volume Three: The Economy, Population, and Manpower Requirements of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
Little (Arthur D.), Inc., San Francisco, CA.
The economy, population, and manpower requirements of the Kansas City metropolitan area are examined in this volume of a report for the planning and development of Metropolitan Junior College (MJC). Part I looks at the Kansas City economy, first from a historical perspective and then in terms of recent trends in economic growth; the comparative growth rates of Kansas City, the state of Missouri, and the nation; structural shifts in employment; recent unemployment trends; and projections of sectoral employment levels in 1975. Additionally, the projection methodology is outlined, and statistical background is provided. Part II reports the results of a manpower requirements approach to vocational education planning. It looks at the existing and future occupational composition of the work force by breaking down all local economic activities into mutually exclusive economic sectors and by studying labor supply and demand for each sector. In addition, an analysis is provided of average annual expansion needs by major industry sectors. A detailed description of data sources and methodology for these analyses is appended to Part II. In Part III, the dynamics of population growth in the Kansas City area are considered, with focus on recent population growth trends and patterns, changes in population distribution and mobility, characteristics of the nonwhite population, educational attainment characteristics, and projections for population growth and distribution in the Kansas City area.
