Federal funds permit a survey sample which results in statewide data outputs. In order to provide sub-state data, the state must allocate additional funds to enlarge its sample size. Ohio is one of the few states doing this. This is not a problem in small states or those in wh...

The worker inventory is important on its own, but it is also the benchmark for estimating future needs. In Ohio, the data confirm the overwhelming dominance of replacement as the primary reason for needing to attract new entrants. The replacement estimates use conservative ass...

Emphasis is placed upon demographic data because the importance of replacement demand in identifying future needs. These data are also more objective than growth projections, which, in the past, have often not identified even long-term employment changes. The main sources of d...
