Descriptions of Home and Community Occupations Related to Home Economics; Descriptions of Specific Occupations Classified Into Six Clusters, Index to Areas of Work and Worker Trait Groups for Individual Occupations. Professional Education Series No. HE-8.
This bulletin is a reference tool for the identification of home economics-related occupations and requirements and methods of entry into these occupations. A full description of 200 home economics-related occupations as found in the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" Volume I, and page references which will facilitate the location of descriptions of the "area of work" and "worker trait group" as indicated in Volume II of the Dictionary are presented. Occupations have been classified and alphabetically arranged into one of six clusters: (1) family relationships, (2) clothing and textiles, (3) foods and nutrition, (4) housing and furnishings, (5) clothing maintenance, and (6) household maintenance and services. Home economics-related occupations were identified by independent analysis of the third edition of the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles," Volume I. Lists were compared and organized into clusters. Value judgments of 136 knowledgeable persons to the questions: (1) Is the occupation related to the cluster in which it is classified? (2) To what extent is home economics needed for job competence or job training? and (3) What other professional, business, or industrial groups are involved? were the bases for the wide variety listed. Condensed data are available in VT 002 611. A wide variety of occupational classifications, work areas, worker trade groups, and educational requirements are represented. (FP)
