Kishwaukee Coll., Malta, IL.
Kishwaukee College conducted a survey of DeKalb County and the Rochelle Township High School District in Illinois during July and August 1971 which (1) determined the area's current and potential manpower resources; (2) identified and described the settled-in Spanish speaking population of the area; (3) determined the area's existing and potential employment opportunities; (4) identified area resources capable of providing for training needs; and (5) provided information to the Illinois Employment service regarding personnel available for work, job opportunities, and projected employment needs. Three phases of the survey were conducted: (1) a mailing of multiple copies of a manpower questionnaire to the 26,740 households in the area (20 percent response), (2) interviewing 1,203 individuals ages 16 to 65 in 566 randomly selected area households, and (3) interviewing 95 randomly selected area farmers. Thirty-six tables and 19 figures present the results of the data gathered. Detailed information is presented relating the many variables considered. A narrative presentation draws out of the tables selected items for comment and explains some of the figures. The survey questionnaires are included in the appendix. (AG)
