The Manpower Information Clearinghouse. Final Report.
The Manpower Information Clearinghouse (MIC) was established in 1972 as a service of Career Information System to provide consultation and interpretation of labor market data to program planners. Clients include planners of educational programs and social services agencies, with priority given to local agencies within Lane County, Oregon. This clearinghouse designed and developed a Manpower Training Information System (MTIS) in order to provide essential information to public officials to facilitate the planning, administration, and evaluation of manpower programs. MTIS incorporates a data bank which acquires information about who is being served and by which manpower program, what services they are receiving, and what happens to them after they are no longer in a manpower program. The final report is a detailed description of the development of the Manpower Information Clearinghouse and the design and operation of the Manpower Training Information System. It is intended to supplement a report entitled "Developing a Career Information System." Contents include: statements of objectives, types of requests and characteristics of clients, sources and utilization of data, and financial considerations of MTIS. detailed appendixes include an occupational report on computer programmers as an example of the kind of information provided by MIC using a variety of data sources.
