A Study of Employment Demand for Agriculture and Agribusiness in New York State. Phase I Final Report.
Berkey, Arthur L.; And Others
Phase 1 of a two-phase study on employment demand in Agriculture/Agribusiness for New York State focused on data collection. Four objectives were to (1) compile a preliminary listing of current occupations by industry emphasizing grade levels, (2) review cross-coding systems for employment demand data, (3) develop a preliminary system for periodic update of employment demand data, and (4) collect data on current and projected labor demand. An advisory committee and intermediary-level task force were established. Two data bases were projected--one listing job titles with appropriate coding and another requiring specifications of data elements and their values to be used on data collection. Data were collected through use of existing data, mailed surveys, personal interviews, and projections from businesses with staffing common patterns. (One-half of the report is comprised of a bibliography and appendixes, including Dictionary of Occupational Titles designations checked for relevant job titles, Standard Industrial Classification codes and business areas defined as agriculture/agribusiness in New York, list of job titles used on survey instruments, and sample survey instrument.)
