The project is concerned with the classification, education, training, and earnings of technicians. The report seeks an operational definition of the term technical and examines how one classifies individuals into the technical category. Improved methods of occupational classification are sought using the statistical technique of discriminant analysis to evaluate the impact of unreliably classified workers on the patterns of job activities displayed by workers in what was designated as technical occupations. A classification procedure based on the discriminant analysis is employed to allow reclassification of certain of the unreliable workers. The amount and type of education and the training of workers in technical occupations are examined, and differences in education and training are related to differences in earnings.
