Young, Robert C.
The purpose of this document is to facilitate the incorporation of manpower demand information into the process of educational, manpower, and vocational education planning. The concepts of demand and the importance of using such data along with other data in human resources planning is discussed. This is followed by a detailed discussion of types of demand data, beginning with the occupational forecast. The Colorado cooperative agreement between the vocational education and employment service staffs is discussed in some detail because of its assumed impact on the quality and utilization of forecast data as well as the quality of vocational education planning and administration. Substantial space is given to discussion of the value and use of student followup information. Other State employment service demand data and problems in converting occupational to educational taxonomies are also discussed. Sixty pages of appendixes include the Colorado agreement, sample occupational employment survey questionnaires, the 1970 census list of occupations, a paper on the Data Problem Versus Other Problems in State and Local Manpower Planning, employment statistics for Colorado, 1970-1975, and for metropolitan areas for 1971-1972, and a 33-item bibliography.
