Geographic and Occupational Mobility of Rural Manpower. Documentation in Agriculture and Food, 75.
Bishop, C. E.
Comparative statistics and the interaction of a group of experts provide the base for this study of occupational and geographic mobility of agricultural manpower. The countries studied were Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Emphasis was placed upon the transfer of labor from agricultural to nonagricultural employment. The study sought to determine the rate at which manpower is being transferred, the types of adjustments in agriculture which are associated with the transfer, the major motivations for the transfer, impediments to mobility, and the types of policies which would improve mobility. Policies were recommended to increase the labor potential of agriculture. A related document is RC 003 916. (DK)
