The New York State Department of Labor's Manpower Projections for the State and its Areas: A Preliminary Report on Methodology. Special Labor News Memorandum 111.
Berman, Abraham J.; Dorfman, Sheldon
Projections of the number of jobs in 1970 and 1975, by occupation and industry, for New York State and its 11 major industrial areas are being developed through techniques described in this publication. The five major steps are: (1) to establish the number in the labor force by age and sex, (2) to establish the number of nonfarm and salary jobs by industry, (3) to establish the total number of jobs by industry, (4) to reconcile conceptual differences, and (5) to construct a matrix of the total number of jobs by occupation and industry division so that the industry totals correspond to the previously estimated figures. In the effort to fit the data from various sources together, it is necessary to find and add data to fill the gaps. Previous estimates have been off to some extent in absolute dimension but they have indicated the direction of change in various occupational fields and illuminated the problems of manpower. Tables in the document present New York 1960 data concerning the census population and labor force, total jobs by class of worker, reconciliation of the work force and labor force, census employment by occupational group and industry division, and adjustment of labor force participation rates to an annual basis.
