New Jersey Manpower Needs in Natural Resources and/or Agriculture.
Drawbaugh, Charles C.; Merritt, Richard H.
In order to meet the needs of educational planners this study was made to determine present and projected employment opportunities in New Jersey in natural resources and agriculture in respect to: (1) full, seasonal, and part-time employment, (2) desirable level of education for specific jobs, (3) salary characteristics, and (4) descriptive labor market information. The total population of agribusinesses was stratified and sampled with a mail questionnaire, using the job title as the major unit for data analysis. The agribusinesses were basically stratified by (1) the 23 business categories, (2) the northern, central, and southern geographical regions of New Jersey, and (3) business size as defined by no employees, 1 to 25 employees, and 26 or more employees. Changing employment patterns were projected from 1971 to 1976, including a 30.7 percent increase in full-time positions from 665,757 in 1971 to 85,930 in 1976, corresponding to a 17.2 percent decrease in seasonal or part-time positions from 55,548 in 1971 to 45,974 in 1976. A need was indicated for 19,627 additional full-time workers, although there would be a surplus of 4,434 seasonal or part-time workers. Numerous tables present the data. (Author/AG)
