EMPLOYMENT OF SCHOOL AGE YOUTH, OCTOBER 1966, A SPECIAL LABOR FORCE REPORT.
PERRELLA, VERA C.
DATA RELATING TO THE CIVILIAN NONINSTITUTIONAL POPULATION AGED 14 TO 24 WERE DERIVED FROM SUPPLEMENTAL QUESTIONS TO THE OCTOBER 1966 MONTHLY SURVEY OF THE LABOR FORCE. THE GROWTH OF THE LABOR FORCE IN THIS AGE GROUP OVER THE PERIOD 1960 TO 1967 HAS BEEN MATCHED BY A GROWTH OF THE SAME MAGNITUDE IN EMPLOYMENT, 3.3 MILLION, SO THAT THE NUMBER OF UNEMPLOYED WAS NO GREATER IN 1966 THAN IN 1960. THE ADDITIONAL NUMBER OF EMPLOYED PERSONS IN THIS AGE GROUP WAS DIVIDED ABOUT EQUALLY BETWEEN STUDENTS AND NONSTUDENTS, ALTHOUGH THE RELATIVE INCREASE WAS MUCH GREATER FOR STUDENTS. SOME 5.3 MILLION STUDENTS WERE IN THE LABOR FORCE IN OCTOBER 1966, NEARLY 2 MILLION MORE THAN IN 1960. MOREOVER, IN THE PAST 2 DECADES THE PROPORTION OF STUDENTS AMONG ALL YOUNG WORKERS HAS DOUBLED. MOST OF THE RISE IN EMPLOYMENT WAS IN PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNICAL OCCUPATIONS, IN OPERATIVE JOBS FOR THE MEN, AND IN CLERICAL AND SERVICE (EXCEPT PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD) OCCUPATIONS FOR THE WOMEN. HOWEVER, AMONG MEN IN SCHOOL, THE NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL JOBS IN WHITE- AND BLUE-COLLAR OCCUPATIONS WAS ABOUT THE SAME, BUT A SUBSTANTIAL RISE OCCURRED IN THE NUMBER OF SERVICE WORKERS. AMONG MEN NOT IN SCHOOL, THE RISE WAS CHIEFLY IN BLUE-COLLAR OCCUPATIONS WHILE THE NUMBER OF SERVICE JOBS REMAINED THE SAME. A TOTAL OF ABOUT 14.5 MILLION OF THIS AGE GROUP WAS IN THE LABOR FORCE IN 1966. THE OVERALL LABOR FORCE PARTICIPATION RATE OF COLLEGE STUDENTS INCREASED 4 PERCENTAGE POINTS BETWEEN 1960 AND 1966.
