Journal of Employment Counseling, v48 n3 p136-144 Sep 2011
The focus of this article was employment creation by developing forest park tourism industries in China. Analysis of the statistical data and an input-output approach showed that 1 direct job opportunity in tourism industries created 1.15 other job opportunities. In the high, middle, and low scenarios, the total predicted employment in forest park tourism was 8.14, 5.13, and 4.82 million, respectively, from 2011 to 2020. These results demonstrate the importance of considering employment within forest park tourism as a viable option. (Contains 2 figures.)
