A P P E N D I X A Materials Associated with the User Survey Appendix A contains responses to a questionnaire that the committee used to survey DOT users. As the accompanying letters show, two kinds of users were surveyed: the first letter was sent to a sample of single-order purchasers of the DOT, and the second letter was sent to DOT users in state agencies. The purchasers of the DOT were randomly sampled from a list of names and addresses, provided by the U.S. Government Printing Office, of individuals who purchased the fourth edition DOT during its first six months of availability. The state users are a casual sample of individuals identified by staff of the State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (so~cc) as users of the DOT. The questionnaire was part of the committee's effort to determine the nature and extent of the uses made of the DOT outside the Employment Service. Other sources of information were site visits to federal agencies identified as major users (see Appendix B) and a literature review of social science research uses of the DOT (see Appendix C). Chapter 4 contains more detail about the sampling design and timing as well as a detailed analysis of the responses. 237
