Abstract: The study is an empirical attempt to assess the impact of technological change on a cross-section of the United States labor force. Three aspects of technological change are of particular concern in this study: 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 relation of machine change to education and training. This study was funded by a grant from the Office of Manpower Research, United States Department of Labor. The survey was conducted in 1967 and is based upon interviews with a sample of 2,662 labor force participants. The dataset is composed of 66l variables for each respondent in the survey.
