Manpower Requirements and Resources in S.C. Industry and Occupation. Supplemental Report 1971.
South Carolina State Employment Security Commission, Columbia. Research Dept.
South Carolina's population growth over 1970-1975 is expected to average 22,000 per year, paralleling the growth rate of the last five-year period. Nonfarm wage and salary employment is expected to increase at an average annual rate of 2.4%, with the corresponding national rate being 2.0%. The fastest growing industrial sectors will be manufacturing, construction, trade, services, and government. Jobs requiring relatively high skill levels, such as professional, technical, and managerial and structural occupations, are expected to have substantial growth. Jobs with lower skill requirements are also expected to expand significantly. Total job demand over the five-year study should amount to 215,000. Occupational categories which are expected to have the largest demand are clerical and sales; professional, technical and managerial; and service. Those occupations which are not expected to exert a demand on the economy are agricultural (service) and processing occupations. More than 43,000 workers will be needed between 1970 and 1975 to meet expansion and replacement needs, as compared to 49,000 for the preceding five-year period.
