In a speech presented before the 1971 Annual Spring Conference of the NCVGA, the speaker addressed herself to a discussion of some of the major findings of the Bay Area Labor Market Project, begun in 1966 at the University of California in Berkeley, and intended to explore the functioning of a large metropolitan labor market, the relationship between various participants and the interactions between various labor market practices and policies. Some findings were that while the employment level in the Bay Area had grown enormously during the sixties, the labor force had grown younger, presenting problems of supervision and "employability". Agency managers as well as school counselors felt that neither their staffs nor potential employees had sufficient knowledge of the local labor market. In response to this situation a study of the "Requirements and Design of a Comprehensive Labor Market Information System for a Large Metropolitan Labor Market Area" was begun. An outline of this project was presented with a report of some results of the programs early stages. (BW)
