Issues Related to the Development and Use of Employer Surveys at the Local Level. Proceedings of the Employer Survey Conferences (Boston, Massachusetts, February 13 and April 10, 1980).
Harrington, Paul E., Ed.; And Others
These proceedings contain the texts of 13 papers presented at a conference devoted to the development and use of employer surveys at the local level. Focus of the first paper is on using local employer surveys for Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) planning and determination of private sector employment and training needs. Examined next is the significance of local employer surveys in a comprehensive occupational information system. In four papers on federal and state agency perspectives on employer surveys the following topics are covered: the viewpoint of the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee on employer surveys; the Occupational Employment Statistics Program and CETA planning information requirements; and programs and products that are available from the Division of Employment Security. The final seven papers address various recent state and local experiences in the design and use of local employer surveys, including the role of establishment survey in the policy formulation process; the New Hampshire Balance of State Employer Survey; and methodology and sample selection for a survey of private sector firms that utilize part-time employment. Also included are two discussions of employer survey conferences. (MN)
