Vocational Plans of Full-Time Community and Junior College Students, Fall 1970.
This report provides previously unpublished data gathered during Project Focus, a nationwide sample survey of community and junior colleges, on the vocational plans and expectations of full-time students enrolled in fall 1970. The data were drawn from a sample of 10,250 student responses from 92 institutions. The report tabulates data on student characteristics (age, sex, ethnic group, father's occupation, timing of vocational choice, size of hometown community) against two vocational variables: expected main vocational roles or occupations and expected fields of specialization. The potential vocational fields of specialization consisted of 98 areas within nine major fields: education; social science or religious; business, political, and persuasive; scientific; agriculture and forestry; health; arts and humanities; engineering; and trade, industrial, and technical. The vocational roles within fields were combined in five broad groups (administrator or supervisor, promoter or salesman of services, etc.). Appendixes include the survey instrument and a description of the sample and weighting procedures. (BB)
