Estimated Supply and Demand for Michigan's College and University Graduates of 1994-1995.
Scheetz, L. Patrick; Gratz, Rebecca
This publication offers an estimated analysis of the employment supply and demand for 1994-95 associate, baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral graduates of Michigan colleges and universities. An opening section briefly outlines the methods and definitions used for the analysis, in particular noting that placement directors and academic planning counselors at Michigan colleges and universities evaluated the supply and demand situations for each academic program offered by their respective institutions. This section also briefly analyzes demographic and economic trends affecting the labor market including increases in the minority proportion of the labor force, estimated average salaries, and future trends creating job opportunities. The rest of the document contains four sections, one for each degree level. The lists group areas of specialization and degree granting according to their estimated demand in the job market: limited supply (adequately more positions than graduates), possible shortage (a few more positions than graduates), near-balanced supply (approximately as many positions as graduates), adequate supply (a few more graduates than positions), and surplus (many more graduates than positions).
