Occupational Opportunities in Nebraska: 1974 Report.
Nebraska Occupational Needs Research Coordinating Unit, Lincoln.; Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln. Div. of Vocational Education.
The seventh annual study of occupational opportunities in Nebraska reflects State manpower needs and trends as revealed by employer listings (number of persons employed, job duties of persons employed, and a projection of future needs). A 5 percent random sample was generated from the revised master list of employers for each of the six State technical community college areas. Job descriptions were coded by job title and number using the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" (D.O.T.) and related to a corresponding instructional training program and number according to "Vocational Education and Occupations." Part 1 consists of tabular projections by occupational titles while part 2 includes tabular projections of need by occupational divisions according to areas of: professional, technical, and managerial occupations; clerical and sales; service; farming, fishery, forestry, and related occupations; processing; machine trades; bench work; structural work; miscellaneous; and occupations with no D.O.T. number. Part 3 tabulates needs by the seven major areas of vocational education (agricultural, distributive, health, home economics, office, technology, and trade/industrial occupations) and lists only those job titles with a corresponding vocational instructional training program. Except for brief summarization, the document contents consist of tabulated data. (EA)
