Patterns of U.S. Economic Growth. 1980 Projections of Final Demand, Interindustry Relationships, Output, Productivity, and Employment.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
This report projects employment by industry for 1980, in order to provide a framework for an occupational outlook program. Included are detailed projections of the labor force, aggregate and industry demand, output, employment, and occupational projections. A 4.3 percent growth rate is projected for gross national product, reflecting an increased rate of growth of the labor force and employment, a decline in average hours, and a smaller rate of increase in productivity. An anticipated fall in federal spending and rise in state and local expenditures assumes a smaller defense budget and increased revenue sharing as the Viet Nam conflict ends. These projections are summarized in the "Monthly Labor Review," April 1970. Numerous data tables support the text. (BH)
