Estimation of national and regional industry demand for photonics workers in the United States
Author(s): Darrell M. Hull; Paul I. Illich; Christine Dossey

Paper Abstract

All National or Regional Centers funded by the National Science Foundation for photonics education and training in the United States have undergone a rigorous attempt to estimate the demand for workers in the regions they serve. We present the procedure for establishing a sample frame, data collection mechanisms, and estimations from analyses that were used in the United States, as well as the results from these analyses. We also provide a template that may be used to replicate the procedures.
