Technological advance in an expanding economy: its impact on a cross-section of the labor force
Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, 1969 - Business & Economics - 254 pages
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.
