This paper concerns the supply and demand for special education personnel for the 1986-87 school year. Obtaining valid, reliable, and comparable data on all the elements that generated personnel need was not possible. Single indicators were most commonly used to obtain data for planning by states, school districts, universities, and the Federal Government, although efforts were underway to identify and analyze the multiple factors affecting supply. Summarized data from the report are presented concerning personnel employed (1986-87), personnel needed (1986-87), and examination of Office of Special Education Programs personnel-needed data. Five tables taken from the complete report detail: (1) number, distribution, and percentage change of special education teachers employed by handicapping condition, school years 1985-86 and 1986-87; (2) the same data for special education personnel other than teachers; (3) number and distribution of special education teachers needed by handicapping condition during school year 1986-87; (4) the same data for special education personnel other than teachers; and (5) teachers employed, teachers needed and the children served under the Education of the Handicapped Act-B and Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation Improvement Act (state operated program).
