Supply and Demand for College Graduates in the South, 1980. Manpower and Education.
Engels, Richard A.; Galambos, Eva C.
This report presents findings on the supply of college graduates in 1980 in the Southern region as compared to openings in which they may become employed. The projections of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) indicate that for a range of 421 occupations (the Comprehensive Projection), there will be a deficit of college educated workers. These occupations extend outside the traditional professional, technical, managerial jobs. The supply/demand comparisons for individual fields of study indicate that health, engineering, accounting, computer science and business administration majors will find a favorable labor market. Education and law school graduates will find a saturated market. Humanities and social science majors will experience difficulty if they are seeking jobs that specifically relate to their educational preparation. (Author/JMF)
