Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
This collection of manpower reports and surveys was prepared to provide a better appraisal and evaluation of manpower activities in developing countries. A total of 300 reports of manpower programs covering a 10-year period for 1958-68 were collected for the inventory, and 226 were selected on the basis of their relevance to the field of manpower development. Most of the reports deal with overall planning and implementation of manpower development programs or manpower programs which involve technical assistance in such areas as measuring current or potential manpower resources, describing techniques to make these measurements, analyzing educational and training institutions to meet manpower needs, or developing job placement services. The summaries are arranged in alphabetical order by country within each geographic region and include reports on 65 projects in Africa, 89 in American Republics, 34 in East Asia, and 38 in Near East and South Asia. A bibliography is appended. (BC)
