A State of the Art Review of Employment Demand Studies in Agriculture/Agribusiness.
Delage-Ofner, Theresa; Smith, William M.
A study provided a systematic review of employment demand studies in agriculture and agribusiness in the United States during the past 22 years and generated recommendations for the development of a consistent reporting format for use in future employment demand studies. Researchers examined 29 studies with respect to the following areas: purpose/objectives, literature review, program area(s), database(s), sampling procedure, description/sample instrument, use of job titles, use of code(s), level of competency, wage/salary information, data collection procedure, description of data analysis, summarization of data, method of dissemination, conclusions/recommendations, problems/limitations, and bibliography. After analyzing these data categories by frequency of occurrence and after seeing the low level of occurrence of the 17 elements in employment demand research projects, researchers formulated 17 separate recommendations calling for the adoption of all the elements in future employment demand research reports. Appended to the report are a summary chart of the employment demand studies by state and year and a bibliography keyed to the summary chart. (MN)
