Abstract

The industrial distribution of employment in the United States has undergone significant changes over the years. Once predominantly agricultural, the nation’s workforce first shifted from farming to mining and manufacturing, and then from producing goods to producing services. The concentration of employment also has changed substantially within major industrial classifications, such as from smokestack to high-tech manufacturing.
