Texas Quality Workforce Planning: 1993 Key Industries and Targeted Occupations for Texas' 24 Quality Work Force Planning Regions.
Texas State Dept. of Commerce, Austin.; Texas State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.; Texas Education Agency, Austin.
In 1993, Texas' 24 quality work force planning committees used a state-developed targeted occupations planning methodology to identify key industries and targeted occupations with the greatest potential for job openings in their respective regions. Between 11 and 20 key industries (13.5 on average) were identified for each region. The following 10 key industries were identified by the majority of committees: health services; business services; construction-special trade contractors; motor freight transport and warehousing; social services; engineering, accounting, research, and management; automotive repair, services, and parking; eating and drinking places; educational services; and wholesale trade-nondurable goods. The number of targeted occupations per region averaged 33, and 14 targeted occupations were identified by a majority of committees. (This document contains the lists of occupations identified by each region plus a list of priority occupations projected to have at least 500 average annual openings to the year 2000. On each list, key regional industries and regionally targeted occupations are listed by Standard Industrial Code number and Occupational Employment Service code name. A brief description of the planning methodology and brief summary of trends are included.) (MN)
