Handbook for Community Manpower Surveys.
Morton, J. E.
This handbook has been prepared to eliminate some of the gap of manpower information at the local level by assisting local manpower experts in the collection of manpower data. Arranged in the order in which steps are taken in an actual survey, contents of the handbook progress from survey work preceding the fieldwork phase to work taking place during the fieldwork phase and finally to the post-fieldwork phase. In addition to a general discussion of the steps, the handbook discusses: (1) concepts, terms, and definitions conventionally employed in manpower analysis, (2) the information to be obtained in a survey, (3) selection of the appropriate type of survey, (4) selection of the data collection instrument, (5) elements of the sampling method, and (6) data processing and evaluation of survey accuracy. Numerous examples augment the text, and several sample data collection instruments are appended. (SB)
