This volume contains those data obtained during the Occupational Projection Research Project pertaining to rural and suburban areas. (The Occupational Projection Research Project was a research project that investigated employer perceptions of the entry level skills, attitudes, and values needed for various occupations as well as employment demands for specific occupational clusters.) Following a brief description of procedures used in the survey, various tables are presented summarizing data pertaining to the skills, attitudes, and values (SAVs) indicated by respondents. Included among the topics covered in the tables are most important SAVs by group, most difficult to find SAVs by group, most common SAVs by group, significance given to graduation/training/experience, recommendations by respondents, occupational projections for the eighties, and occupational cluster increase/decrease. Following a summary of these findings, detailed tabulations of responses to the project survey are appended. (The final report on this project as well as a report of project findings for urban areas are available separately--see note.) (MN)
