Second and Third Level Manpower demand Projections (1994 - 2000)


This paper attempts to generate reasonable projections of the demand for and the supply of secondary-level and tertiary-level manpower in Ethiopia. Towards that end, 1994 population census and other data on relevant variables are used, in conjunction with parameters of lab our productivity, GDP and attrition rates. The paper employs a simple model in preparing the projections. The projection results indicate a potential surplus of manpower at both second and third levels as related to the supply of manpower output from the educational system. Further, the paper addresses policy issues in education and employment planning in relation to the manpower demand projections.
