Development of a Local Labor Market Analysis Model To Identify Employment Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities Living on Reservations. Navajo Nation Employers, 1993. Volume One.
Shook, Scott L.; And Others
This document presents results of a study to identify employers on the Navajo reservation conducted for the purpose of helping vocational rehabilitation counselors place American Indians with disabilities living on the reservation into appropriate jobs. The study identified 962 businesses on the reservation, not including churches. Businesses are categorized according to the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. Graphs show business groupings by industry and number of employers, and by specific Navajo agencies and number of employers. The study found that at least 47 employers had more than 150 employees. It notes a reduction of eight percent in number of employers since a 1989 study. Statistical analysis of the data provides information on employer stability rate, turnover, and organizational life expectancy. Most of the document consists of appendices which include the actual employer listing (arranged by the five Navajo agencies), a list of Navajo-controlled employers located off the reservation, employers included in the 1989 listing but not the present one, important phone numbers for each of the five agencies, comparisons of the 1989 and 1993 lists by agency, large employers by agency, and a guide to the SIC classification system.
