ABSTRACT
The article offers an outlook for labor market research. There is a need for testing of a wide variety of hypotheses beyond the elements of the basic framework of labor market analysis. Furthermore, there is a need for testing the effect on the employment of young people of the various factors, in occupations, in industries and in geographic areas for which sequential data are available or can be developed. The programs that are concerned with the effective utilization of manpower resources need data on the dynamics of labor requirements of the economy, how these requirements are met and how they might be met with minimum social costs and maximum utilization.
