A Study of Vocational and Technical Skill Needs in Lafourche Parish.
Kennedy, Francis J.
The manpower survey, conducted in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, determined current and future manpower requirements and related them to the occupational skills needed in the vocational-technical program in the schools. Data were obtained from employer respondents through a mail questionnaire sent to nearly 1,800 firms in the parish with a return of 500. From the data collected and analyzed the Lafourche Parish manpower needs and occupations requiring less than four years of college are discussed. Further stated are the manpower requirements in terms of total employment and background, skill classifications, the occupational mix, new jobs available, a summary of occupational requirements, and vocational-technical education requirements. Twenty-five recommendations are listed. Appendixes make up more than two-thirds of the document and consist of general manpower tables, occupational tables, and the survey of manpower and training needs questionnaire. (BP)
