Occupational Information Resources. A Catalog of Data Bases and Classification Schemes. Information Series No. 104.
Ashley, William L., Comp.
Designed primarily as a basic reference to assist researchers and planners in the study of factors related to occupational mobility and skill transfer within and between occupations, this catalog consists of two major sections. Section 1 contains the abstracts of the data bases. These abstracts include selected key variables organized in a standard format and are intended to present the reader with sufficient information to enable him/her to determine if any of the data bases are appropriate to their needs and warrant further examination. The abstract format of the data bases includes the following: data base title, principal investigator, documentation, access, design information, subject variables, and occupational variables. Section 2 contains the abstracts of classification schemes. The classification scheme abstract format is designed to facilitate the use of the classification schemes in organizing information from the data bases to give a variety of new perspectives on occupational mobility and occupational skill transfer. The abstract format for the classification schemes includes the following: scheme title, design information, classification variables, and outcomes/products. Appended are lists of the identified data bases and of data base abstracts by principal investigator, data base worksheet, classification scheme worksheet, and a data base cross reference index. (SH)
