Analysis of Employee Supply and Demand in Howard County--A Pilot Approach.
Howard Coll. at Big Spring, TX.
A survey developed by the Occupational Education Division of Howard University to determine employee supply and demand in Howard County, Texas, involved both employees and employers. Employer data were compiled from interviews with 319 out of a possible 409 employers who employed three or more people. Conclusions and recommendations for the following occupational areas are presented on an individual basis: farm and ranch, industrial, office, health, technical, public service, distributive, home economics, agriculture, and home. General conclusions for employer data cover 27 items pertaining to training programs, educational requirements, employment opportunities, educational needs, and wages. Employee data, based upon surveys of 88 employed and 82 unemployed subjects, were considered too meager for generalized conclusions. Ten tables supplement the discussion. Fourteen brief statements comment on the outcome and knowledge gained from the pilot program and recommendations for improving the survey are listed. Literature in the area of manpower needs projection is reviewed and project related documents and survey forms are appended. (LH)
