dc.description.abstract This thesis investigated the distribution of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) Public Service Employment (PSE) funds to counties in Indiana from a rural-urban perspective. A four-prong approach was employed to determine if nonmetropolitan areas in Indiana had received an equitable share of the total Public Service Employment funds, Titles II and VI, allocated in Indiana. Relative need, as indicated by shares of population, unemployment, and disadvantaged, was calculated; the severity of barriers to employment opportunity were assessed; the efficiency and costs of program operation were examined; and, population growth and migration was reviewed.In addition, this thesis attempted to ascertain if alternative distribution mechanisms (formulas) might allocate the manpower funds in a more equitable fashion.
