The Scientific Workshop on the Status of Employment, Unemployment and Underemployment of the Asian/Pacific Americans (1st, August 20-25, 1978, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California).
The Stanford Workshop made a comprehensive review of the relevant issues for analyzing the employment profile of the Asian/Pacific Americans and also of the available data base for initiating a scientific economic study. The recommendations and conclusions were: (1) an independent survey should be undertaken; (2) Asian/Pacific Americans constitute the smallest minority, and a major segment of them constitutes the major portion of new Americans, yet there exists an absence of adequate information for proper manpower planning for them; (3) the Asian/Pacific American labor market should be studied as a composite group, since studies covering sub-groups (e.g., Japanese, Chinese, etc.) remain too fragmented; (4) the proposed study should not be postponed until the 1980 census data are available; (5) the proposed study would be completed by 1982, thus providing a set of findings much sooner for possible formulation of the nation's manpower needs; (6) the manpower planning of the nation has been related to the immigration policy; and (7) the address-banks of alternate sources (for identifying Asian Americans) should be used as the "universe" for the survey of the proposed study.
