  • So what do you want to be when you grow up? Think about it because I might ask you later! <<Tell a little about yourself and your background…>>
  • The goal for today is to let you see data and sources that will help your students make good career choices. Careers that pay well and have a future.
  • So why is planning your career important? The Montana Dept. of Labor did a study that showed that 17% of people change their job every year. Over 40% said they had a plan, but almost 70% said that, if they were starting over, they would want more information. Changing careers, or “false starts” can cost you: tuition for retraining, turnover, and unemployment.
  • Since we all know that information is power, the more information you have, the better your decision will be. The information listed here…labor force, occupations, wages, and so on…are the types of data that will help your students make good career decisions.
  • So, let’s look at the population and labor force in South Carolina. We will use SC data today since you are from all over the state.
  • In order to know what you face in an adult ed environment, you need to understand the make-up of what is coming through your doors. This table shows population characteristics for the state and for the 3 largest counties. You can see that over 23% of the population in SC is under 18 years old. There is also a large group, 14.1%, that is 65 years or older. The state is predominately white, with over 28% black. This varies by county as you can see with Richland County being almost even between black and white, while Greenville County has only 18% black. We will talk in more depth about high school graduates and Bachelor’s degrees later on. It is interesting to see the percentages of languages spent at home that are other than English: Greenville has over 11%!
  • Before you can really understand the labor force, you need to understand some definitions… EMPLOYED: People 16 or older who worked FOR PAY anytime during the week of the 12 th of the month. You might think that is an arbritary date but the 12 th was picked because it is the date closest to the middle of the month that has the fewest national holidays. UNEMPLOYED: Same age group but want a job and are able to work. We call this the “able and available rule”: you are able to work (you have transportation and child or elder care figured out, and you are not sick, and you are available for work. LABOR FORCE: Just employed and unemployed added together UNEMP. RATE: Just a mathematical equation of the unemployment divided by the labor force. The unemployment rate is NOT just everyone who gets an unemployment check. It is more than that. Initial unemployment claims are included but the “recipe” also includes employment, turnover, layoffs, and data from neighboring states that share a labor market.
  • This is the BLS website, one of the hard ones to navigate… Check out what the arrow is pointing to…BLS will soon have more information for students and teachers!
  • But here are some teacher-friendly parts of the BLS website:
  • The US Census Bureau should be familiar to all of us and the keeper of the data about the population. It has a vast amount of information but can be hard to navigate. They do have a great teacher resource through…
  • This puts all of the education/school-related Census resources in one place. Facts for Features is very timely—it has Back to School statistics up now—Yes, already!! They also have lesson plans and teaching ideas. It’s a great resource!
