Migrational and Occupational Change. Implications for College Manpower Supply and Demand in the SREB States.
Engels, Richard A.; Levin, Martin L.
Estimates of supply and demand balances for college graduates in various fields of study are affected by migration and transfers between occupations. Although there are no current statistics detailing population relocation and shifts between occupations, it is possible to infer the general magnitude of these forces from earlier census data. In 1965-1970 the south had more professional-technical and managerial-administrative personnel moving into the region than moving out. If this experience were to apply in 1980, considerable additional competition would be created for newly emerging college graduates from southern colleges and universities. However, to the extent that southern institutions begin to produce sufficient graduates to meet occupational requirements within the region, migration from outside the region, formerly necessary to fill the technical-professional and managerial deficits, should become a less significant factor.
