Occupational Mobility of Employed Workers. January 1973.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
A summary is presented of findings concerning occupational mobility based on data obtained in a supplement to the January 1973 Current Population Survey, conducted by the Bureau of the Census. Statistical data is offered in three tables, comparing occupational mobility between January 1972 and January 1973 of employed persons over 18: (1) by age and sex; (2) by age, sex, and race; and (3) by occupation and sex. About six million persons employed in January 1973 were in different occupations from those in which they were working in January 1972. Nine percent of the men and about eight percent of the women employed at both dates changed occupations over this period. The demographic characteristic most closely associated with mobility was age of worker, though occupation and other characteristics also were important. (Author/AJ)
