In 1991, a project was undertaken to gather information to evaluate the impact of the Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory (SSCL) on the training and employment needs of North Central Texas. Project goals were to: (1) revise and expand INTERLINK's labor demand estimates and forecasts for the combined North Central Texas and SSCL regions; (2) disaggregate all regional labor demand estimates and forecasts to the county level; (3) estimate the occupational structure of the direct and indirect regional employment effects of the SSCL; (4) identify regional employers of the occupations significantly affected by the event of the SSCL; (5) inventory vocational education graduates of community colleges and technical institutes in Texas; and (6) produce a custom version of INTERLINK's microcomputer-based Labor Market Information System incorporating the SSC Technical Training Project data. The labor market of the combined 16-county North Central Texas region, plus Hill and McClennan Counties, was studied. The bulk of the project report consists of appendixes providing SSCL employment information, disk file documentation, a North Central Texas employer listing, an SSC technical training project supplement to the users' manual for INTERLINK, technical documentation of regional labor demand and statewide labor supply data bases, and SSCL direct and indirect job descriptions by Occupational Employment Statistics code.
