New Government Report: Labor Force Projections Through 2021

Labor Force Projections Through 2021

by David Brauer
Paperback, 26 pages, 2011, $20.00
ISBN: 1437983464

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) examines many developments that could have short- or longer-term consequences for the budget and the economy. In coming decades, one such development is expected to be a slower rate of growth of the labor force relative to its average over the past few decades. That slowdown is anticipated to occur primarily because of the aging and retirement of large numbers of baby boomers and because women’s participation in the labor force has leveled off since the late 1990s after having risen substantially for the preceding three decades. This report describes CBO’s methods for projecting such trends through 2021. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.

New Government Report: Aviation Safety

Aviation Safety: Certification and Approval Processes Are Generally Viewed as Working Well, but Information Needed to Improve Efficiency

by Gerald L. Dillingham
Paperback, 40 pages, 2010, $25.00
ISBN: 1437942121

Among its responsibilities for aviation safety, the FAA issues thousands of certificates and approvals annually. These certificates and approvals, which FAA bases on its interpretation of federal standards, indicate that such things as new aircraft, the design and production of aircraft parts and equipment, and new air operators are safe for use in the national airspace system. FAA’s interpretations may produce variation in its decisions and inefficiencies that adversely affect the industry. This report examined the: (1) extent of variation in FAA’s interpretation of standards for certification and approval decisions; and (2) views of key stakeholders and experts on how well these processes work. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
