An Analysis of Characteristics of Selected Unemployment Insurance Claimants with Implications for Vocational Education.
Arkansas State Employment Security Div., Little Rock.
In 1975, the Arkansas Employment Security Division conducted a telephone survey of 15,675 unemployed insurance claimants at the request of the Division of Vocational Education of the State Department of Education. The purpose of the survey was threefold: (1) to obtain detailed social and economic characteristics of the claimants, (2) to determine if the claimants had ever participated in occupational training, and (3) to determine if the claimants felt that occupational training would help them in securing future employment. Results of the survey included thefindings that about 36% of the claimants had received some training, about 64% felt that additional training would help them get a better job, and about 51% expressed willingness to attend vocational school to receive this training. The report includes a statement on methodology, a sample of the questionnaire, and an appendix summarizing the results by State and Arkansas Manpower Planning Areas. Survey findings are presented in both narrative and tabular form. (RG)
