Regional Employment by Industry, 1940-1970. Decennial Series for United States, Regions, States, Counties. A Supplement to the Survey of Current Business.
Ashby, Lowell D.; Cartwright, David W.
The volume presents employment by industry from the decennial censuses of population for 1940, 1950, 1960, and 1970. Thirty-five identified civilian industries are presented for each area for 1970, 1960, and 1950, together with 30 groups for 1940. Introductory material deals with the definition of employment, industrial classification of civilian employees, place of residence, seasonal factor, geographic classification, and related analytical capabilities of various branches of the U.S. Department of Commerce. A map shows the regional grouping of States used in the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The same grouping is reflected in a table which presents the total employment data by region and State at each of four census enumeration years together with percent changes over four selected periods comprised by those years. Another table presents the same data, for the United States as a whole, by industry. Separate tabulations for each of the eight geographic regions contain employment figures by industry for the entire region, each State within the region, and each county within the State. Appendix A lists the data sources for 1970, 1960, 1950, and 1940. Appendix B shows the code designation of the similar groups in the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) for each industrial group. (Author/MS)
