Technological advance in an expanding economy; its impact on a cross-section of the labor force by Eva Mueller( Book )

15 editions published between 1969 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1967 the Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan conducted a nationwide survey to determine the impact of changes in machine technology on a cross-section of the labor force. Although many studies have been made about automation, this study was larger in scope than most research and made use of cross-sectional analysis to show the frequency of changes in machine technology and in what occupational and educational groups they occurred. Over a 5-year period about 10 percent of the labor force underwent one or more changes in machine technology which altered their work significantly, and technological advance changed about 2 or 3 percent of all jobs a year, about 1.5 to 2 million jobs. Individual chapters in this report contain detailed information on: (1) Machinery Use by the Work Force, (2) Change in Machine Technology, (3) Change-over Process to New Equipment, (4) Economic Consequences of Machine Technology, (5) Impact of Changes on Perceived Job Characteristics and Job Satisfaction, (6) Analyses of Cases who made a Poor Adjustment to Technological Change, and (7) Role of Education in Relation to Technological Change.

The household economy of rural Botswana : an African case by Dov Chernichovsky( Book )

9 editions published in 1985 in English and Italian and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an effort to understand the causes of poverty and its perpetuation in an African rural economy, this study analysed household data from the Rural Income Distribution Survey (RIDS) conducted in 1974-75 in Botswana. About 85 percent of Botswana's population in the mid seventies comprised rural households. More than 50 percent of these households were estimated to live below the Poverty Datum Line established by the Government. This fact underscored Botswana's unequal income distribution: the wealthiest 10 percent received 50 percent of rural incomes in the mid-l970s. Animal husbandry provided the lion's share, 44 percent, of average household income. Farming, although pursued with a relatively high share of family labor, provided only an estimated 11 percent of income. One impediment to improvement of agricultural incomes was the relative unavailability of good cleared land for farming. This situation affected adversely mostly female-headed households because they had limited access to productive assets, including cattle, and to wage employment. Improvement in the quality of life among Botswana's rural population at the time of the survey, seemed to require raising the relative returns to crop production, and generating wage employment in the rural areas

Geographic Mobility of Labor, 1962-1963 by John B Lansing( )

3 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focused on labor force mobility in the United States. Wider in scope than previous studies of local labor markets and particular categories of workers, this investigation obtained information about attitudes, motives, and the economic circumstances of families, in addition to migration history and demographic characteristics. A broad range of data were collected on the causes of mobility and obstacles to mobility, the process of mobility, and its consequences. Three waves of interviews were conducted in August-September 1962, November-December 1962, and November 1963 with national cross-section samples of the adult population. From each household, either the head or the spouse was interviewed. Special samples of people living in redevelopment areas and having recently moved were also surveyed, and a panel of respondents selected from both a cross-national sample and residents of redevelopment areas was reinterviewed in August 1963. The data collection includes three files. Part 1 contains information for all respondents, including reinterviews, organized around the family as unit of analysis. Filter variables allow a separate analysis of cross-sectional data. In Part 2 the unit of analysis is the move, with variables documenting year, geographic region and state, and reasons for the move. Part 3 provides information about the relocation of adult offspring, other than the first, aged 18-29. Demographic data include age, sex, race, marital status, income, occupation, and level of education ... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/07434.xml

Technological Advance in an Expanding Economy, 1967 by Eva Mueller( )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempted to assess empirically the impact of technological change on a cross-section of the United States labor force. Survey questions focused on three aspects of technological change: (1) the economic impact of machine change on the work force in terms of income change, promotions, steadiness of employment, and unemployment, (2) the relevance of machine change for job satisfaction and job content, and (3) the ways in which machine changes relate to education and training. Demographic variables include respondents' age, sex, marital status, number of underage children, level of education and professional training, and annual income from main job
