From November 1971 to February 1972 the National Society of Professional Engineers conducted a study for the U.S. Department of Labor of public services of Orange County, California, to identify employment potential for scientific personnel in aerospace and defense engineering. The study findings were that fewer than 50 new jobs will become available in 1972; that future growth in employment will depend heavily on legislation adopted and enforcement measures implemented in the environment, in federally sponsored commercial research and development, in federal support of small-town civic needs, and in development of geothermal resources; and that greatly expanded professional self-employment is a fundamental requirement.
