Occupational and Educational Structures of the Labour Force and Levels of Economic Development.
Jallade, Jean-Pierre; And Others
To identify and quantify factors which determine the occupational and educational structure of the labor force, the 1960 and 1961 census data of 53 countries were analyzed. Multiple regression analysis showed output per worker and product per capita to be the best explanatory variables for occupational structure. The educational profile of the different occupational categories was correlated with both the educational and occupational structure of the total labor force. The supposedly contradictory manpower and rate of return approaches to the economic objectives of educational planning were reconciled. (BH)
