The 13th annual manpower report reviews economic trends, manpower program resources, and new legislative developments dealing with unemployment and recessionary trends. Chapter 1 discusses the major economic developments during the year and the impact of unemployment on the labor force. Chapter 2 explores the role of public sector jobs in reducing the social and economic costs of unemployment. Chapter 3 focuses on recent demographic and social changes either reinforcing or discouraging women's labor force participation, sex/race discrimination, and special problems. Chapter 4 describes the prime sponsor activity in providing comprehensive manpower programs, in particular CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) and current and projected activities at the national level. Chapter 5 reviews the Unemployment Insurance (UI) system, Work Incentive Program (WIN), the employment services. Chapter 6 offers an interim report of recent research efforts measuring the employment impact of changes in government policy and expenditure levels. The subsequent section stresses the economic vulnerability of portions of the Vietnam-era veteran population (black, disabled). A report on facilities utilization and manpower program coordination under CETA concludes the document. Supporting statistical data comprise 150 pages of the appendix. (Author/JB)
