These 89 tables present total employment in Ohio (civilian and military) and in each of its 88 counties from 1940 to 1970 as tabulated by the Bureau of Census. Each table indicates the number employed and the percent of the total employed for 1940, 1950, 1960, and 1970 in the following industries: Agriculture, forestry, and fisheries; mining; contract construction; manufacturing; transportation and utilities; wholesale and trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; services; public administration; and armed forces. In Ohio as a whole, total employment increased 30.8% from 1940 to 1950, 14.8% from 1950-1960, and 17.1% from 1960 to 1970, an overall gain of 75.9% from 1940 to 1970. Six industries showed absolute decline: Agriculture, mining, textile mill products, apparel, railroad transportation, and private households. Agriculture, forestry, and fisheries; mining; contract construction; manufacturing; and transportation and utilities declined in their relative shares of total employment from 1950, while the remaining sectors increased their relative shares.
