Occupational Employment Patterns for 1960 and 1975.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
Estimates of the occupational composition of employment by industries for 1960 and projections for 1970 are presented, with occupational profiles for 116 industries including all types of economic activities. Total employment percentages are included for about 160 occupational categories classified in broad occupational groups. Industry-occupational ratios projected to 1975 were used to determine future occupational employment requirements by applying them to projections of total employment in each industry for 1975. An average of 89 million persons are expected to be at work by 1975, an increase of one-third over the 67 million employed in 1960. The labor force of 1975 will be composed of a larger proportion of young persons. Employment requirements for all non-agricultural occupations are projected to increase 39 percent. White collar workers will continue a long-term high rate of growth to include almost half of all employed workers by 1975. The number of blue collar jobs is expected to increase, but proportionally will fall to about one-third of the total employment. The service workers group is expected to require more than 4 million additional workers, a 50 percent increase. Requirements for farmers and farm laborers are expected to decline by more than 37 percent by 1975. The document contains statistical data and extensive tables and charts. (FP)
