The economic impact of organized camping in the United States in 1982 : an estimate and analysis by Portland. Organized Camping Resources Center for Research and Advanced Study University of Southern Maine( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explored the economic value of organized camping in the United States. Organized camping provides: (1) job opportunities for target unemployment groups; (2) expenditures for food, insurance, equipment, supplies, improvements and services; and (3) an investment in recreational facilities. Separate state reports list total population of camps, stratification and delivery of services, direct expenditures, tourism generated, direct plus indirect impact, total state economic impact, and total national impact. Figures are based on studies from Maine, New York, and Michigan and projected to the five American Camping Association Regions: New England, Mid-Atlantic, Southern, Mid-American, and Western. The report makes adjustments to the figures to consider the change in the consumer price index from the year the state reports were done to 1982, when this report was completed. Regional adjustments are based on national differences in operating costs. A multiplier effect was added to account for the indirect effect of expenditures as a result of the re-spending by the recipient. Estimates are considered conservative. The report cautions readers to consider the unusual methodology when interpreting results. (KS)
Maine's college graduates : where they go and why : finding Maine's future workforce (revisited) by David L Silvernail( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the knowledge-based economy of today, training and retaining a college educated workforce is crucial to the vitality of Maine. Approximately one-half of Maine's high school graduates who go on to college leave the State to do so. A previous study, "Maine's College Graduates: Where They Go and Why" (2003), looked at the factors that influenced where Maine residents go to college and where they ultimately live and work. The current study, "Maine's College Graduates: Where They Go and Why (Revisited)", replicates the previous study with a different cohort in order to determine if the findings are indeed consistent and generalizable to a broader population of Maine's college graduates. In addition, it provides discussions of some policy recommendations that may help Maine retain a more educated workforce in the future. The survey entitled Higher Education Survey 2004 was completed by a sample of Maine residents who had earned a college degree in 1997 or 1999. a comparison of useable returns with survey returns from the 2003 study, which focused on those who received a degree in 1998, indicated that the groups surveyed were equivalent. Therefore, for this analysis, the three groups of respondents were combined, resulting in research findings based on over 1,780 college graduates. Findings indicate that Maine needs a comprehensive long-range plan for retaining a college-educated workforce. This plan should include steps to better market Maine's colleges and universities, provide support for more Centers of Excellence programs, and provide greater financial assistance to students. An equally important part of this plan should include increasing employment opportunities within the State, as well as encouraging greater cultural diversity and social opportunities.

Predictors of success among older workers in new jobs by E. Michael Brady( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To examine older workers' general values toward work and their specific motivations when seeking a new job, a sample of 198 people aged 50 or older who had recently begun a new job were interviewed by telephone. A follow-up interview was conducted 4 months later (n=182). Regarding general work values, respondents ranked "feeling a sense of accomplishment" as their highest priority. Factor analysis of 16 work value items yielded 5 factors: material benefits, mental stimulation, job compatibility, flexibility, and social environment. The most important motivational value during pursuit of the new job was the desire to feel useful. Factor analysis of motivational items yielded two factors: material benefits/security and personal development/social. The follow-up interview revealed 75 percent of respondents were still at the same job. Being able to use previously developed skills, seeing the impact of one's work on the final product, having the freedom to decide what to do on the job, and not being too closely supervised all related to job persistence and work satisfaction among older workers. Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed gender was the important predictor of persistence on the job, with women persisting more than men; worker independence was the most important predictor of job satisfaction and ability to use previously developed skills and abilities on the new job was the most important predictor of "fit" between job sought and job located. A major recommendation resulting from this research is for hirers to pay attention to the intrinsic (non-material) benefits of work as well as to the extrinsic (material) gains. Older workers are seeking a challenge and a sense of accomplishment. (Appendixes include 29 references, older worker referral materials, and interview schedules and instruments.) (YLB)
