The manpower projections prepared and presented in this report have been developed in response to a long-expressed need by manpower planners and vocational educators for information on future manpower requirements for occupations and industries. The need for this information was recognized in several key pieces of federal and state legislation during the 1960's. More recently, the importance of industry and occupational projections for manpower planning was expressed in the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973. This report is part of an overall Manpower Projections Project encompassing the State and its 13 major Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas currently being undertaken by the Employment Development Department, Division of Employment Data and Research.

Included in this report are projections of industry and occupational employment that have been made within the framework of certain basic national and state economic assumptions. It is essential that the user of this report be aware of these assumptions and consider their significance in the light of current conditions.
