FIG. XV. TRENDS IN THE LABOR FORCE: 1947 TO 1959 [See table 263]
Source: Chart prepared by Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census. Data for 1947-June 1959 are from Bureau of the Census; thereafter, Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Labor Force, Employment, and Earnings
This section presents statistics dealing with the characteristics of the economically active segment of the population, the labor force; its distribution by occupation and industry affiliation; and the supply of, demand for, and conditions of labor.
The chief sources of these data are the Bureau of the Census' Decennial Census of Population (see text, p. 1) and Current Population Survey (see text, p. 2); the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Employment and Earnings and Monthly Labor Review; and the Agricultural Marketing Service's monthly report, Farm Labor.
Statistics shown in this section are of two types. One type is obtained by the "population approach” represented by the Census of Population of the Bureau of the Census and the monthly labor force survey of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, for which data are collected by the Bureau of the Census as a part of the Current Population Survey. This approach involves direct enumeration and interrogation of individuals to obtain information on employment activity from workers or members of workers' households. Each employed worker is counted only once, even though he may have held two or more jobs during a given period.
The second type of data is obtained by the "establishment approach” represented by the industry surveys of the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the surveys of the Agricultural Marketing Service. These data are based on reports from employers, i.e., farms, businesses, or industrial establishments. Such data as wages, hours worked, labor turnover, and industry affiliation of employees can be more accurately obtained from employers' records than from inquiries directed to a worker or a member of his household. Workers appearing on more than one payroll for the same time period are counted more than once in establishment statistics.
The Decennial Census of Population provides detailed data for the United States, and for each State, city, and other area, including personal characteristics (sex, age, race, etc.) of the numbers employed and unemployed, the number reported in each occupation and in each industry, and other items. The labor force survey, conducted as a part of the Current Population Survey, provides current data published in Employment and Earnings and related publications series of the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Data presented include national totals, by sex and age, of the number of persons in the civilian labor force, the number employed in nonagricultural industries and agriculture, the number unemployed, and the number of nonworkers. Also provided are data on hours of work and major occupation group of those employed and duration of unemployment of those unemployed.
In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Employment and Earnings provides detailed monthly data on employment, unemployment, payrolls, labor turnover, earnings, and hours. These data for broad groupings are shown in the Monthly Labor Review, which also presents statistics on wage rates, industrial relations, and output per man-hour. Although, for the most part, data are presented for the United States only, certain of these data are also shown for States and large cities.
Labor force.—The labor force data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of the Census include persons 14 years old and over who were employed, unemployed, or in the Armed Forces during a specified week. Employed persons are those who did any work for pay or profit during the week, or who worked without pay for 15 hours or more in a family enterprise (farm or business); also included are persons who did not work or look for work but who had a job or business from which
