Occupational Demand in Minnesota for 1973.
Copa, George H.; Irvin, Donald E., Jr.
Effective planning of vocational education programs requires information about both the educational demand of individuals and the manpower demands of business and industry. Two characteristics of the manpower demand in Minnesota which are defined and estimated in this report are occupational demand, the total number of employment positions in a given geographic area, and unfilled positions, the number of positions to be newly filled in a given time period. Occupational demand for a specific occupation may be defined as the number of positions in the occupation last year plus the average annual growth or decline in positions. Thus, unfilled positions in the occupation may be defined as the average annual growth or decline in positions plus the annual number of positions vacated by worker withdrawal. The methods used to estimate occupational demand and unfilled positions are detailed in the report, along with tabular data for the State, for the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, and for the 11 economic regions of the State. Limitations of the estimates and assumptions made are pointed out. No implications are drawn as to how demand will be filled by supply; only the total number of positions (occupational demand) and the number of unfilled positions have been estimated. The purpose of this report is to supplement existing information provided by the Minnesota Department of Manpower Services. (MF)
