BRUNSMAN, HOWARD G.
DETAILED NATIONAL STATISTICS ARE GIVEN ON VARIOUS SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF MEMBERS OF THE LABOR RESERVE. THE LABOR RESERVE IS COMPRISED OF THOSE PERSONS CLASSIFIED AS NOT IN THE LABOR FORCE AT THE TIME OF THE CENSUS BUT WHO HAD HAD SOME WORK EXPERIENCE WITHIN THE 10 YEARS PRECEDING 1960. THE STATISTICS ARE BASED ON A 5 PERCENT SAMPLE OF THE POPULATION ENUMERATED IN THE EIGHTEENTH DECENNIAL CENSUS OF POPULATION, TAKEN ON APRIL 1, 1960. DATA ON SUCH PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS AS AGE, COLOR, SEX, RESIDENCE IN 1955, SCHOOL ENROLLMENT, EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT, MARITAL STATUS, HOUSEHOLD RELATIONSHIP, THE NUMBER AND AGE OF OWN CHILDREN, AND THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN EVER BORN TO WOMEN EVER MARRIED ARE USED TO DESCRIBE THE DEMOGRAPHIC AND SOCIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF MEMBERS OF THE LABOR RESERVE. TO DESCRIBE THE LABOR RESERVE AS A POTENTIAL MANPOWER RESOURCE AND TO PRESENT AN INVENTORY OF SKILLS, DATA RELATING TO MOST RECENT WORK EXPERIENCE ARE SHOWN FOR OCCUPATION, INDUSTRY, CLASS OF WORKER, AND YEAR LAST WORKED. TWO LEVELS OF CLASSIFICATION ARE USED TO PRESENT OCCUPATIONAL DATA IN THIS REPORT. SUB-GROUPINGS OF 17 OF THE 297 SPECIFIC OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORIES USED IN THE 1960 CENSUS OF POPULATION ARE MADE, RESULTING IN THE PRESENTATION OF OVER 500 ITEMS IN THE DETAILED LISTINGS. ALSO PRESENTED IS AN INTERMEDIATE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM, WHICH PRESENTS 161 ITEMS FOR MALES AND 70 ITEMS FOR FEMALES.
