Benefits and Costs of Manpower Services in the Interlake Rural Development Area. Research Bulletin No. 72-1.
MacMillan, James A.; And Others
Research objectives were to: determine the impact of selected manpower programs on the Interlake area of Manitoba, employing a benefit-cost analysis; measure the differential effects of manpower services; produce a data base on characteristics of the unemployed and underemployed; and compare the long run benefits of manpower, capital improvements, and social service input. After determining 12 types of manpower services available, a service group (63 percent response) and a randomly selected norm group (43 percent response) were interviewed via questionnaire for comparative information on: (1) mechanisms most used in seeking jobs; (2) relocation preferences; (3) base period and exposure period; and (4) benefits and costs of manpower services. Some significant findings were: industrial, farm management, and vocational and special training were of greatest benefit to the trained client; base year level of earnings and level of weeks employed were the most important characteristics determining the level of income benefits from non-agricultural services; there was a potential for reducing unmet client needs with improved mobility and placement services; client characteristics indicated the disadvantaged were being served, particularly American Indians; and manpower services had increased employment and earnings for most groups.
