The Effect of Occupational Growth on Labor Force Task Characteristics.
Szafran, Robert F.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v23 n1 p54-86 Feb 1996
Examination of changes in 495 occupations from 1950-1990 shows an increased likelihood of tasks with high levels of complexity and social interaction, decreased likelihood of fine or gross motor skills or harsh climatic conditions. There is evidence that jobs have become polarized on the need for fine motor skills and level of social interaction. (SK)
