Jakubauskas, Edward B.; Palomba, Neil A.
Job vacancies were reported to aid Iowa area vocational schools in developing curriculums and training program by determining: (1) occupations to be considered for training purposes in area vocational schools, (2) demand for workers in occupations under consideration by area schools, (3) oversupply in certain skills, and (4) an on-going procedure for immediate feedback of industry's most critical manpower shortages to educators. Response of 980 of 3,000 firms provided data which was analyzed by occupational group, industry classification, and county and multi-county areas. A total of 11,388 full-time vacancies were uncovered. Largest vacancies were in the benchwork occupations, processing occupations, and machine trades occupations. Results, using an inflation procedure, are presented in the appendixes under headings of: (1) number of job vacancies, by major and detailed occupations groups, Iowa and multi-county subareas, (2) number of job vacancies, by industry and major occupational group, Iowa, (3) number of job vacancies and average hourly wage rates offered, by detailed occupational group, 99 counties and (4) inflated job vacancies by major and detailed occupational groups and by industry group. Similar listings for earlier time periods are available as VT 003 596 and VT 005 639-40. (DM)
