The Employment Situation in Selected Communities on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Thaxton, Louis C.; Tuthill, Dean F.
This is an illustrated report on some findings of the Citizens Education Project (CEP), a 1979 survey of the employment situation of communities in five Maryland counties. The study was conducted by the Maryland Cooperative Extension Service, University of Maryland, College Park and Eastern Shore, with funding from Extension Program 1890. The report provides statistics on employment (by age, sex, and race), unemployment, occupational distributions of employed populations, full time and part time employment, employed women, work skills, and employment in large and small firms. Also included are information on community efforts to reduce unemployment and suggestions as to how community educational programs can prepare people for careers and employment. (MJL)
