Manpower Requirements for Massachusetts: by Occupation, by Industry, 1970-1980.
The report is an approximation of industrial and occupational needs for 1970-80 for 225 industries and 445 occupations in Massachusetts based on industry and employment records for 1960-71, occupational employment levels as reported in the 1970 Decennial Census, and the national industry/occupational matrix. The occupational demand detailed in the report's two lengthy tables is based on anticipated changes in industrial employment and replacement demand likely to arise due to deaths, retirements, and transfers of experienced workers to other occupations. Industry employment trends indicate: manufacturing will suffer the greatest decrease in employment; employment in contract construction will increase substantially; employment in transportation, communications, public utilities, wholesale and retail trade, finance, insurance, real estate, and public administration will grow moderately; and employment in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries will decline. From the occupational standpoint, the growth in the professional, technical, and kindred occupations will be substantial; the net demand in the clerical field will be the largest among the nine major occupational divisions; demand for workers in the service worker field will increase over the 1970-80 period; and among the remaining occupational divisions, all except operatives and kindred workers and farmers and farm workers will show positive growth rates.
