GREAT LAKES MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS. DECK AND ENGINE OFFICERS SUPPLY AND DEMAND 1978-1987

Two scenarios are developed concerning the future supply and demand conditions on the Great Lakes. They are composed of attrition rates of the current workforce; entry and attrition rates of newly licensed officers; length of the average sailing season; number of days worked; fleet size and other factors. The first scenario essentially projects current conditions into the future at a relatively constant rate. The second scenario uses the same parameters as the first, except that the men-per-billet ratios are increased in two incremental stages (in 1981 and 1984) in order to approximate the current men-per-billet ratios found within the deep-sea maritime sector.
