Occupational Employment Statistics, 1960-70.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
This government publication provides a summary of occupational changes occurring between 1960 and 1970 and presents occupational estimates by industry, which were derived from such sources as the 1960 census and surveys conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, other government agencies, the professional associations. From 1960 to 1970, the number of white-collar workers increased from about 29 million to 38 million. In comparison, all other types of workers increased at a much slower rate, from about 37 million to 41 million, and declined from about 56 percent to 52 percent of total employment. Technological changes have profoundly influenced employment trends. The fastest growth rates were for professional and technical jobs, which increased nearly 50 percent, and clerical jobs, which increased 40 percent. Between 1960 and 1970, total employment increased from 65.8 million to 78.6 million, which is nearly a 20 percent increase. (Author/AG)
