Geographic Profile of Employment and Unemployment, 1974 (and Supplement).
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
Geographic labor force data from the 1974 Current Population Survey (CPS) is presented and provides annual unemployment, demographic, and occupational estimates for large States and metropolitan areas. Section One contains the 1974 total unemployment estimates for 27 large States and 30 large metropolitan areas, with two tables. These estimates were used by the Department of Labor in 1975 for the allocation of funds under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). Section Two presents 1974 CPS annual average demographic and occupational estimates for 25 large States and 28 large Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA's), with six tables. Appended material discusses: revised procedures for estimating employment and unemployment for States and areas; metropolitan area geographic definitions for the 30 largest metropolitan areas used; statistical outline procedure, for atypical sample estimates; changes in the occupational classification system; and five standard error tables, which the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests all users consult before developing any comparative analyses. A four-page supplement contains revised total estimates for Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C. (LH)
