ABSTRACT
The article provides information on various research projects about manpower supply. The research projects include one by Vernon Briggs on the effectiveness of public service employment programs in the rural South. The study is funded by the Department of Labor in the U.S. Another research project is being conducted by Harry J. Holzer on the differences in allocation of time to activities by black youth who are employed, unemployed, or out of the labor market. However, Robert Meyer is continuing his study about the determinants of participation in high school vocational education and the effects of vocational education and high school work experience on wages and employment.
