Occupations of Federal Blue-Collar Workers. Sixth Edition.
Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC. Manpower Statistics Div.
The booklet presents the results of the Civil Service Commission's survey of full-time Federal civilian employment as of October 31, 1970. Personnel were reported in almost 1,400 separate occupations and combined into 53 specific job family groups and a "Miscellaneous Occupations" job family. The blue-collar employees made up slightly over 22% of the total full-time work force and nearly all were stationed in the U.S. The number of personnel in blue-collar positions has decreased each year since 1957 (excluding 1961 and 1966), cutbacks in the Department of Defense being responsible for the net loss. The specific tables compiled are: full-time blue collar employment by a) agency and geographic area; b) occupational family, geographic area, and sex; c) occupational family, sex, and supervisory positions; occupational distribution of full-time blue-collar employees by selected agency; comparison of full-time blue-collar employment by major occupational groups and geographic area, 1965-1968-1970; and trend of Federal full-time blue-collar employed by major occupational groups.
