Status of the NOICC/SOICC Network, June 30, 1985. NOICC Administrative Report No. 11.
This document is the sixth annual report of the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (NOICC) and its network of state counterparts (SOICCs). It presents brief highlights of the NOICC/SOICC Network's accomplishments since its formation under the Education Amendments of 1976, with an emphasis on activities in 1984 and early 1985. Some of these highlights include the following: (1) an increase in National Committee membership and state committee memberships; (2) funding of $3 million from the U.S. Department of Labor, $2.24 million from the Department of Education, and of $1.25 million from the Department of Defense for specific activities (NOICC allocated about 84% of these funds to the states); (3) improvement of the crosswalk, or cross-coding instrument, that shows the relationships among the major classifications used in collecting data on occupations and education (it is now an extensive computerized database, kept up to date by the Iowa SOICC); (4) improvement of materials and procedures to help states relate data on labor supply from training institutions to data on employment demand in related occupations; (5) participation in state and Federal efforts to improve the Occupational Information Service database, such as information from substate areas, computerized information on military careers, and a guide to military careers; (6) aid to states in providing computerized systems for program planning; and (7) computer-based systems that served approximately 5 million persons in 1984-85. NOICC is continuing to upgrade training and provide more information on use of its statistics. (Appendixes to this document list SOICCs, publications, NOICC policies and agreements, and examples of use.) (KC)
