CHANGES IN THE COST AND AVAILABILITY OF CONSTRUCTION LABOR

Regression or correlation analysis was used to investigate the future of construction labor and changes in its cost and availability. Projections of total employees on contract construction payrolls and hourly wages of construction workers on contract construction payrolls are based on selected independent variables and regression equations. Trend projections to the year 2000 are included for the independent and dependent variables. The impact of changes on the Corps of Engineers is discussed and the Corps' reaction alternatives outlined. The construction labor situation as of February 1975 is evaluated as a basis for prediction.
