Utilizing Manpower and Follow-Up Data: A Perspective for Local Vocational Planning.
Robertson, J. Marvin
Written to assist local administrators in utilizing available data to plan local vocational education programs, this publication is organized around a series of planning tasks and manpower data. As one of the important sources of planning data, manpower information is explored for its usefulness in setting goals, determining labor market needs, curriculum content, occupational guidance, and job placement for local programs of vocational education. In addition, various research studies are briefly reviewed in examining the literature for the use of follow-up data in developing priorities and making evaluation studies of local programs. (SN)
