Job Pattern and Components of Occupational Change in Mississippi Employment, 1950-1960.
ElAttar, M.
Summarized in this publication are the statistical highlights, conclusions, and implications of a study designed to analyze the shifts in Mississippi's occupational and industrial employment structures, and their interrelationship during the period from 1950 to 1960. Using data obtained from the United States Bureau of the Census 1952 and 1961 reports on employed personnel, occupational changes were analyzed in terms of the two components: industry effect, and occupational mix effect. Influences of the components were investigated in terms of their forms, quantities, and directions both in gaining and losing occupations. Findings revealed that the total occupational change involved increases in professional, managerial sales, craftsmen, operatives, and service workers at the expense of farm laborers. This seems to indicate that the Mississippi economy demands new and changing skills and therefore its work force must be continuously trained to keep pace with the transitional economy such as is present in the U.S. if it is to achieve its social and economic goals.
