Regional Forecasts of Industrial Base Manpower Demand, 1981 to 1987. Volume II: Forecast Details.
Doggett, Ralph M.
This report contains computer-generated tables of data obtained through a survey conducted to analyze the role of national defense in shaping employment demand by occupation, both nationally and regionally, for 1981-1987. Data were gathered through the Regional Occupation Planning and Evaluation System (ROPES) in which detailed information on the employment of 163 occupations in 82 industries and information on the distribution of expenditures for defense among supplying industries were combined within a system of economic forecasting models to estimate future employment by occupation nationally, by state, and for each of 70 major cities. The report is organized into three sections. In all three sections, information is compared for 1981 and 1987 in defense-related and total occupations; average annual and percentage growth for each of the occupations are noted. Section 1 forecasts national employment by occupation. Section 2 contains forecasts of employment by occupation and by state, while forecasts of employment by occupation in selected metropolitan areas are the subject of the third section. (KC)
