How to Make an Inventory of High-Level and Skilled Manpower in Developing Countries. International Labor Statistics Manual, Report No. 331.
Kay, Evelyn R.
Techniques are described in detail for estimating current levels of skilled manpower. Specifically, the techniques facilitate obtaining an occupational composition pattern for each economic activity, that is, a count of the number employed in each occupation or occupational group in the current, or base, year. The techniques are: (1) clarify the ultimate purposes of the inventory, (2) study the goals of the economic development plan in the country, (3) prepare a tentative list of occupations, (4) locate available statistical information, (5) prepare a manpower inventory from secondary sources, and (6) conduct a survey of employing establishments. The techniques discussed in this manual are drawn primarily from experiences of manpower consultants who assisted other countries in making inventories of high level and skilled manpower. A summary of these techniques is appended. A related manual is available as ED 022 006. (CH)
