The journal describes the Management Information System for Occupational Education (MISOE), designed to provide computerized information support capability for State level occupational education planning. An introductory chapter presents a guide for reading the publication. The second chapter describes basic components and terminology and outlines the conceptual structure of inputs, process, product, and impact. Chapter 3 briefly outlines the important information types of the census data systems which provide minimum information for statewide management of occupational education. The sample data systems which provide information necessary for policy development are presented in chapter 4. The economics of public investment in education and MISOE cost analysis systems are discussed in chapter 5. Chapter 6 describes interactive computing systems and the flexibility of MISOE data files. Interacting with MISOE data, operations, and output indices is the subject of chapter 7. Planning for occupational education using MISOE is dealt with in chapter 8. Educational policy and system dynamics are described in chapter 9. The final chapter offers assessments of MISOE from the professional perspectives of a State manager of occupational education, an educational researcher, and an economist. A two-page reference list and brief notes about the 10 contributors conclude the journal. (Author/MS)
