Employment Opportunity Projections: Occupational Outlook to 1985. Report No. 74-1.
Purdue Univ., Lafayette, IN. Office of Manpower Studies.
The report presents occupational information and projected employment in an abbreviated form intended to facilitate career and educational planning. Occupations requiring post-secondary education are emphasized. The job descriptions, qualifications, and employment outlook are arranged into 13 career cluster areas: (1) industry, (2) business, (3) services, (4) education, (5) sales, (6) construction, (7) transportation, (8) science and technology, (9) mechanics and repairs, (10) health, (11) social sciences, (12) social services, and (13) art, design, and communications. Generally, a broad description of each of the career cluster groups is presented first; the materials are then further arranged into subfields, based on a concept of related activities. For those occupations requiring formal post-secondary training, descriptive data include the number of people currently employed and the future employment outlook to the mid-1980's. This projection indicates percentage change in employment expected as well as expected supply and demand. A brief summary of pertinent occupational employment data is presented in the appendix. Occupations are arranged by cluster with the current estimated employment--and average number of expected job openings each year for the next decade--shown in columnar form. (Author/MW)
