Analytical Potential of the Current Population Survey for Manpower and Employment Research. Studies in Employment and Unemployment.
The primary scope of this publication is to contribute to the promotion of research in the general area of manpower and employment by surveying the supply of statistical data with a view to stimulating and facilitating their analytical use. Since the mass of relevant manpower data in this country is enormous, it was decided to approach the problem in steps and to select the Current Population Survey as the first major data source for examination. To achieve this objective, the present study undertakes to stimulate analytical efforts by considering not only the content of the information, but also the format in which it might be usefully available for analysis; hence the emphasis on preparing the prospective data-consumer for some of the consequences of the enormous size and the increasing volume of relevant information.
