Projections of Occupational Requirements for Kansas in 1980.
Spellman, William Eugene
The objective of this study was to quantify the occupational structure of the Kansas economy and to develop a methodology for forecasting occupational requirements in 1980 for the State. The empirical results of this study are designed to serve as a basis for manpower planning. The Kansas input-output model was employed to project the output levels for each industry-classification in the State economy by 1980. The output levels for each industry were estimated by projecting the level of final demand in 1980 to determine the interindustrial requirements to produce such a level of final demand. The level of employment required to produce the output can be estimated by considering the rate of productivity change for each industry. (Author)
