Manpower planning creates a special need for information that identifies growth occupations or positions and entry level and/or para-professional positions which require minimal training. Estimates and projections of employment by industries and by occupations have been presented and analyzed elsewhere with emphasis upon general trends in such employment in the Omaha SMSA. In order to have a more specific understanding of local developments, additional information as to recent past and current occupational developments is desirable. An attempt to obtain such information was made by means of a survey of employers in the Omaha SMSA in August-September, 1977. The specific objectives of the survey were to identify (1) growth occupations or positions in the Omaha SMSA, (2) entry level and paraprofessional positions in the Omaha SMSA, and (3) sources of minimal training.
