Concepts and Measurements for Manpower and Occupational Analysis.
Scoville, James G.
This volume contains information on occupational data and their uses, jobs-theories, case studies, and improved data bases. A survey was made of current applications of occupational information data and conceptual bases and practical shortcomings of the more frequently used classification systems. In addition, an economic theory was developed to determine the content of jobs and the relationship between various jobs within and between employing units. Some practical illustrations emphasize the utility of this model for analysis of a data scheme. The development of ideas and data depended primarily on literature review and interviews with company executives, officers of trade associations and industry groups, research officers of labor unions, and representatives of government agencies; questionnaires could not be used. A bibliography is appended. (BC)
