A Technical Evaluation of the First Stage of the Mediterranean Regional Project.
Objectives of this technical evaluation concerning the transfer of experience in the development of human resources were to develop educational plans based upon comprehensive estimates of manpower requirements and to evaluate the methods used in estimating manpower requirements for educational planning. The methodology involved estimates of the total output of the economy, sectorial output, inverse sectorial labor productivity, total occupational distribution, education associated with the occupation, total educational stock, increment of manpower by education, and the total graduate flow. Some findings were: (1) The impact of manpower requirements upon the educational system is likely to be very significant, (2) Uncertainty about productivity change is largely transformed into uncertainty about the occupational structure, (3) Substitution possibilities exist and can be important in their effects on manpower requirements estimates, (4) Improved efficiency was not obtained by disaggregation of data used in manpower requirements estimation, and (5) There is little knowledge about the education associated with each occupation. Tables of data and descriptions of the methodology employed are appended. (DM)
