The principal hypothesis of this study was that training programs in penal institutions were not related to unfilled job openings by major occupations in the United States. It was further hypothesized that training programs being reported would have a wide variety of titles rather than follow the Dictionary of Occupational Titles format. The design for this study was the questionnaire-survey method, since the scope of the research entailed a wide geographic area. A transmittal letter was compiled, as well as a check sheet which listed training areas being offered by the Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Department of Justice. Questionnaires were sent to 364 state and twenty-eight federal penal institutions. Responses were received from 257 state institutions and from all twenty-eight federal institutions.
