A Mobility Study.
Morton, J. B.; And Others
The purpose of the mobility study was to determine what number and percentage of secondary, postsecondary, and full-time adult graduates of vocational-technical programs in Oklahoma find or seek employment in the same geographic region of their graduation. It was also determined what number and percentage of graduates leave the region to seek employment in each of the 11 sub-State planning regions. The results of the study are indicated in maps presented in numerical order by occupational objectives. For each of the 88 occupational objectives, a 'trained and working' map indicates the percentage of total number of graduates trained in the region and the percentage of total graduates working in other States. The 'mobility' maps, expressed in statewide percentages, show direction and level of geographic mobility and indicate the percentage of the total graduates' migration. Out-of-State migration is similarly reported, except that the migration path is drawn to the nearest State border rather than State destination. In 24 of the 88 occupational objectives, a significant difference was found between the distribution of trainees to the 11 sub-State planning regions and the distribution of graduates to the 11 sub-State planning regions.
