Maxim, D.; And Others
The report, one of a series resulting from a project to design planning procedures for local and State vocational agencies, describes LIONS (Labor and Industry Occupational Needs System), a computer system designed to provide forecasts of the demand for various occupational skills by area for the State of New Jersey. The methodology may have application to similar planning and forecasting problems in other States. To enable the reader to understand and effectively utilize the LIONS system, the report is divided into six sections: an introduction and overview, a qualitative description of the methodology, input preparation and running instructions, output report contents, comments and system error messages, and appendixes containing a detailed statement of the algorithms and a summary of the input data requirements.
