Occupational Manpower and Training Needs: Information for Vocational Counseling and Planning for Occupational Training. Revised 1974. Bulletin No. 1824.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
The bulletin presents projections of the 1985 manpower requirements of 240 occupations for which considerable training is most often required or desirable, and which will comprise an estimated 70 million workers or two-thirds of the civilian labor force at that time. A brief chapter discusses the use of occupational projections and training data for planning and counseling. Another chapter presents projections of occupational requirements for broadly-defined occupational groups through the mid-1980's based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics' studies of economic growth, technological change, and industrial and occupational trends. A third chapter discusses available occupational training offered by: vocational education, apprenticeship programs, employer training, armed forces training, Federal manpower programs, home study courses, junior and community colleges, and colleges and universities. A final 50-page chapter describes in detail for each of 240 occupations in 14 categories: occupational training requirements, statistics on 1972 employment, projected 1985 requirements, projected rate of growth from 1972 to 1985, projected annual openings for growth and replacement, and most recent data on the number of persons completing training. Four appendixes covering 30 pages deal with methods and assumptions for projections of manpower requirements, detailed occupational projections, detailed training statistics, and State employment security agencies.
