The manpower message of the president to the congress, delivered January 23, 1967, in which he proposed the largest manpower program yet undertaken by the nation is presented. The sixth manpower report, the major part of this document, assesses accomplishments and shortcomings of efforts directed toward national manpower objectives. New ground is broken through the report's systematic review, in each chapter, of the current state of knowledge of the major manpower problem areas and the suggestions it makes regarding needed informational improvements. Major chapter headings are--(1) "introduction by the secretary of labor," (2) "new perspectives on manpower problems and measures," (3) "barriers to employment of the disadvantaged," (4) "bridging the gap from school to work," (5)"geographic factors in employment and manpower development," and (6) "review of manpower developments in 1967," including the subheadings "trends in employment and unemployment" and "new developments in manpower programs." a statistical appendix includes 87 tables which provide information on (1) the labor force, employment, and unemployment, (2) special labor force data, (3) employment, hours, earnings, and labor turnover in nonagricultural establishments, (4) state and area employment and unemployment, and (5) manpower program statistics. The data for 1967 reflect several definitional changes of important concepts. Abstracts of chapters 2 through 6 are available as vt 005 942-vt 005 947. This document is available as l1.42/2--968 for $2.25 from superintendent of documents, U.S. Government printing office, Washington, D.C. 20402. (et)
