Illinois Agricultural Occupations: An Occupational Employment Study of Agricultural Service Industries.
Illinois Univ., Urbana.
In response to a need for additional data on agriculturally related employment, the Illinois State Board of Education funded a research project with two objectives: to collect additional agricultural employment data and to identify employment in agriculturally related industries in Illinois under the Standard Industrial Classification system. The task force recommended using four separate questionnaires for the Agricultural Services data collection. Agricultural Services is separated into six industries: soil preparation services; crop services; veterinary services; farm labor and management services; and landscape and horticulture services. (Five figures depict results and conclusions: distribution of employment in agricultural service sectors; statewide estimated employment in agricultural services sectors; average number of employees per industry number; and employment distribution in agricultural services. The bulk of this document contains estimated occupational employment results for the occupational cluster listed on the questionnaires: managers and owners; professional and technical occupations; mechanics, construction, repairers, and machine operative occupations; production and maintenance occupations; sales and services occupations; and clerical occupations.)
