Statistical data on scientists, engineers, and technicians (SET) in trade and regulated industries in 1982 are provided in three sections: (1) SET in trade and regulated industries by major occupational group and detailed industry of employment; (2) SET in trade and regulated industries by detailed occupation and broad industry group of employment; and (3) SET in each trade and regulated industry, as a percent of total employment in the industry, and the relative error. These data, obtained from the Occupational Employment Statistics Survey, represent reliable estimates of the utilization of SET by private industry. Analysis of this information provides insight into the dynamics of the labor market as SET requirements respond to variations in growth among industries, and to the impact of technology and other factors upon industry, wage and salary workers. (All data are in Standard Industrial Classification codes 40 through 59.) (JN)
