Historical Estimates, 1960-1970, of Occupational Employment for the State SMSA's and Balance of State.
Franchak, Stephen J.; And Others
The document is the report of a research project designed to provide occupational employment projections for the State of Pennsylvania through the development and use of a computer-based system. Section 1 of the report (11 pages) discusses the three projection methods used: two recommended by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one an econometric method and the other a regression method; and one prepared by the National Planning Association, a modification of the Bureau of Labor Statistics' regression method. Section 2 of the document (125 pages) presents occupational employment figures on each of 469 occupations for the 1960 and 1970 and the growth factor for each over the decade. In all, 12 sets of such figures are provided: one for the State as a whole; one each for the 12 Standard metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs) of Allentown-Bethlehem, Altoona, Erie, Harrisburg, Johnstown, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Reading, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and York; and one for the remainder of the State. All of the matrices are residence-based, that is, they describe the occupation of employed persons at their place of residence. Appendixes include a flow chart, a short list of references, and a map of the State. (JR)
