Educational and Employment Plans and Occupational Choices of Indiana High School Seniors in the Class of '75.
Purdue Univ., Lafayette, IN. Office of Manpower Studies.
The objectives of the study were to help high school seniors make occupational choices, develop their employment and educational plans, and to provide data for school personnel and for the planning of postsecondary vocational training activities. Approximately 50,000 Indiana high school seniors were surveyed as to their educational and employment plans and their vocational choices. The seniors were given lists of nearly 400 occupations, arranged in career clusters, together with lists of colleges, universities, and training institutions to suggest available options. The survey instrument used for seniors in three previous classes was revised and mailed to all Indiana high schools. Tabulated responses make up the bulk of the document and are presented in two parts, statewide survey results and survey results from each of Indiana's 14 planning and development regions. Principal areas covered by the survey included senior characteristics, characteristics of head of household, plans after graduation, career choices, college and university choices, and educational or training program choices. Other areas covered include student career interests, reasons for planning to delay or not to continue education, and educational financing methods. A sample copy of the survey package is appended.
