To further the goals and purposes of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) in Kansas, monograph 115 in this series presented estimates of the numbers of person in selected demographic and targeted groups in Kansas and the United States who were eligible for participation in CETA programs in the period 1978-1982.The present monograph examines some demographic characteristics of the eligible groups, and the trends in these characteristics during this period, as a further aid to the design and administration of CETA programs appropriate to the needs of these disadvantaged groups.In addition the analysis of the CETA-eligible population throws further light on the problem of disadvantaged workers in Kansas. The problems of such "target groups" were one of the seven issues related to the Kansas labor market identified in the first monograph in this series.1 Monograph 114 analysed information on the economically disadvantaged in Kansas and the Wichita Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area available from the national Survey of Income and Education (1975-6). Although the information about the CETA-eligible population is drawn from a different data-base (the Current Population Survey), it serves to bring our knowledge of the disadvantaged groups more up-to-date.
