Title:Predicting probable supply of labour: an analysis of career aspirations of some Nigerian youths
Author:Sanda, A.O.
Periodical:Journal of Eastern African Research and Development
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:This paper examines the pattern of career aspirations of a selected sample of university educated youths in Nigerian society. The inquiries took place only shortly before the respondents were to become engaged in their diverse occupational pursuits, and it is believed that their expressed occupational aspirations might be highly related if not identical with their eventual occupational involvements. From this kind of data, it is possible to predict the pattern of entry into different careers, assuming an open occupational and employment structure.
