Handbook for Manpower Planners, Part 1. Census Use Study.
Emery, Dani; O'Donnell, Lynn
This handbook is the first of two volumes designed to assist manpower planners in the use of data from the 1970 Decennial Census of Population and Housing. Intended to facilitate data gathering, improve the quality of analysis, and provide suggestions for identifying community needs, the handbook attempts to break down the mass of available census data into usable patterns. Information on population by race, ethnic group, sex, and age, selected target groups, educational attainment, employment status, income level, and occupational are provided in simple tables. A minimum data table gives the planner most of the information necessary to begin area comparisons. The "Manpower Indicators" section of the handbook contains several suggested tabulations which include national figures as well as sources for state figures. Other aids to the use of the census data are included with a comment sheet for feedback from users of the handbook. (KH)
