1. Outline of the Study
A. Necessity and Purpose for Collaborative Study
Importance of workforce development is ever increasing in our society, marked as knowledge-based and low fertility & rapidly aging society. To establish an effective workforce development system, workforce need and supply should be projected based on the assessment of the current workforce.
Despite their limitations, nationwide aggregate projections are regarded reliable through continuous improvements by researchers. Yet, they seem to fall far short of providing the needed insights into the reliable policies for higher education workforce, ranging from basic statistical infrastructure to projection model development.
Therefore, an effective projection system is in need for making efficient and coherent higher education workforce policies aimed at sustainable growth. A multi-year, collaborative study is required to achieve the goals of this study: developing a mid and long term projection system for higher education workforce policies, securing its coherence and reliability and enhancing its availability; building up a statistical infrastructure to enhance the reliability of projection results; and providing workforce projections by major.
This 3-year long study (2011-2013) aims to contribute to maximizing the potential of national economy and leading its sustainable growth by providing a mid and long term workforce projection system, which is essential to establishing efficient and effective higher education workforce policies.
B. Purpose and Results of the 2nd-Year Study
Investigated in the second year study were the current state of workforce-related statistical infrastructures and ways to develop a novel statistical infrastructure for greater availability. Higher education workforce by major was projected by utilization of the workforce projection model developed based on the established statistical infrastructure in the 1st year-study.
This study presents higher education workforce projection by major at the sub-major group level, providing a baseline information for developing higher education workforce policies. To this end, the current statistical infrastructures for workforce projection were assessed, a new complemented statistical system was devised, and workforce projections by major were made. To be more specific, the workforce supply projection was drawn from the assessment of Higher Education Statistical DB and Employment Statistical DB published by Korean Educational Development Institute, while the workforce demand by major was projected from the outcomes of surveys done to enterprises in formulating a novel statistical infrastructure.
The outcomes of the 2nd year-study, assessment of the current statistical infrastructures and workforce projection by major, will serve as the basic statistical infrastructure for aggregate projection of higher education workforce and collaborative interdisciplinary studies in the 3rd year-study.
