SHIPYARD WORKER EMPLOYMENT AND TURNOVER. VOLUME I. DESCRIPTION OF DATA FILE AND TABULATIONS

Workers employed in shipbuilding often leave the industry for work in other industries or in other places. Shipyards that provide training for leavers may thus simply be bearing the training costs for other industries. At the same time, replacing the workers lost to other industries may be very expensive. This report presents tabulations of data about labor turnover in shipbuilding. They measure the number of workers who leave the industry, by age and tenure; the industries and metropolitan areas to which they go from specific shipbuilding centers; and labor turnover by year from 1957 to 1971. This volume describes the tabulations and explains how to read them.
