Phillips, Melinda R.; And Others
This handbook explains the components of the North Carolina Career Information and Guidance Data Base. (This database is a three-volume statewide career information and guidance system that is being built to offer counselors and clients computerized access to standardized occupational and educational information.) Outlined in the handbook are the following sections of the database: the educational information file (its purpose, procedures, content, and organization); the occupational information file (a general description of the file, the history of its development, and the files' standard occupational classification or SOC descriptions); the employment outlook section (current and projected supply and demand, the interpretation and analysis of supply-demand interaction, the limitations of supply-demand analysis, and wage information); and the disability section (the purpose of the section, differences between the terms handicap and disability, and disability philosophy). Appendixes to the handbook include lists of signatory committee members and alternates of the North Carolina State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, state and local technical advisory committee members, task force members, SOC description writers, and North Carolina favorable occupations.
