A Pilot Investigation for Developing and Operating a State Occupational Information Service System for Vocational-Technical Education. Final Report.
Baker, Richard A.; And Others
To investigate and resolve some of the problems associated with developing a permanent state-wide occupational information service system for planning and programing vocational education, a small scale data bank was developed for six selected countries in Alabama. Inputs were collected from 38 high schools offering vocational education, two post-secondary vocational institutes, three county employment offices, one chamber of commerce, four institutions offering non-public supported programs, and some manpower training programs. The occupation-industry material approach was used to estimate employment levels, and a cross tabulation computer program was used to project employment. The information output components were: (1) demographic, (2) manpower demand, (3) manpower supply, and (4) resources inventories. Charts and exhibits illustrate the kinds of information available and its output organization from the system. (Author)
