Manpower Requirements and Resources in S.C. Industry and Occupation.
Richey, William B.
The population of South Carolina is expected to grow 1.1 percent annually from 1960 to 1975 compared with 1.3 percent for the United States. Total employment is expected to grow at a rate of 1.9 percent for the State and the Nation. In 1960, for every 100 jobs in goods-producing industries in South Carolina, there were 80 jobs in service-producing industries. By 1975, the number of goods-producing and service-producing jobs are expected to be about equal. There were more blue collar workers than white collar workers in South Carolina in 1960 while the reverse was true for the United States as a whole. This relationship is expected to continue through 1975. Between 1968 and 1975, it is forecast that 345,000 jobs will have to be filled. A survey of the manpower resources indicated that an average of 38,000 workers annually would be supplied for expansion and replacement needs and that 49,000 new entrants to jobs would be required annually. Greatest needs will be for operatives, service and clerical workers, craftsmen, and professional personnel. (BC)
