A Survey of Employment Opportunities and Community Resources Having Implications for Programs of Vocational Agriculture in Connecticut: Phase 2. Final Report.
Mannebach, Alfred J.; Lownds, Barbara V.
The publication is a report of phase 2 of a two-phase project to determine the employment opportunities and community resources in vocational agriculture in Connecticut. The study was designed to enumerate job possibilities, to inform farmers and agricultural firm operators of the vocational agriculture program, and to identify the community resources available to State programs in vocational agriculture. Phase 2, conducted between July 1964 and March 1975, involved the collection, compilation, and reporting of the data, and the dissemination of information about the vocational agriculture program. The tabulated data appearing in the report provide information about current and projected employment, income, and levels of experience and education required for beginning employment. Results of the survey indicate that the employment opportunities in agriculture in the State are increasing at the rate of approximately 3 percent per year. The findings also indicate a large number of resources available in the State that could be utilized to enrich the vocational agriculture program. The major portion of the report is taken up with the presentation and summary of the data. Phase 2 procedures are described, and a summary of the activities of phase 1 also appears. A sample interview schedule is appended along with information about project personnel. (NJ)
