Abstract : THe Department of Defense has developed a model used to project defense related demands for labor in each of 163 occupational categories. The projections are made using a module of the Defense Economic Impact Modeling System (DEIMS) referred to as LDEIMS. DEIMS itself is described in Defense Purchases: An Introduction to DEIMS, which is available from the DOD point of contact listed at the front of this booklet. This booklet discusses only LDEIMS. It walks through a sample LDEIMS projection, describes how the projections are made, and discusses sources of uncertainty in them. Attached at the end of this booklet is a listing of the occupations included in LDEIMS and a form for ordering LDEIMS projections for articular occupations. Along with the order form is a card designed to get your views on the projections and this booklet. Your comments will help us improve both the usefulness of the projections and the form in which they are presented.
