Abstract

The study explored the validity of the assumptions concerning the education-occupation relationship with special reference to manpower planning in Pakistan. Empirical evidence both from the literature on manpower planning and from the real-working situation in Pakistan were collected. We collected data through questionnaires from the respondents. The main research question was: Is the education-employment relationship assumed in Pakistani manpower planning valid? The study is divided into nine chapters. It begins with an introduction to the study in which we highlight its significance, research questions, and the assumptions of the manpower requirements approach concerning this relationship. The second chapter reviews the manpower planning literature critically examining the main features of different methods of the manpower requirements approach. Chapter three presents the overall picture of the "economic structure of Pakistan". Chapter four describes in detail, the various manpower planning exercises conducted in Pakistan and the role of different organizations both at the Federal and Provincial level, involved in the planning exercises. This is followed by a "critical examination of manpower planning in Pakistan" in chapter five. Chapter six describes the "research questions and methodology"used in the research. The "sample and responses" is presented in chapter seven, followed by the "analysis and interpretation" presented in chapter eight focusing on their implications in Pakistan. Chapter nine concludes the study with a "summary of conclusions and recommendations" based on the findings of the present study. On the basis of the evidence collected in this research we concluded that the assumptions made concerning the education-occupation relationship in Pakistani manpower planning exercises are largely invalid.
