State-Wide Computerized Model for Determining Occupational Opportunities in Nebraska. Final Report.
Nebraska Occupational Needs Research Coordinating Unit, Lincoln.; Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln. Div. of Vocational Education.
The eighth annual report of a continuing project to supply occupational data to educators, the study emphasizes the determination of manpower needs and job opportunities from information furnished by employers in the State of Nebraska for the year ending June 30, 1975. The data will be used in planning vocational education programs. During this year a 5% computerized random sample of 4,369 firms, generated from the six technical community college areas, was drawn from the updated master list of approximately 85,000 firms. Each employer in the sample was interviewed by a University of Nebraska student to obtain the number of employees in each job category and the future need for additional employees in each job. Data from the interviews were compiled and processed by computer to give total employment, projected manpower needs for the next 12-month period, reason for need, and needs for the following two years. Stored data for the two previous years were merged with the new data and averaged for the three years. The composite data were tabulated according to occupational classifications of the dictionary of occupational titles. (MF)
