The Division of Science Resources Studies of the National Science Foundation has enhanced the BLS effort since 1977 by financing the collection of detailed estimates on the types of scientific and technical jobs filled by industry. Analysis of this information yields insight into the dynamics of the labor market.
Industries identified in the tables of this report are from the "Numerical List of Short Titles" in the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual, revised edition. The numbers of scientists, engineers, and technicians for a few industries at the 2-digit SIC level (tables A-2, A-3, A-4, A-7, A-8, and A-9) in this 1993 edition, as well as in the 1990 edition, differ from those in the prior (1987) report on nonmanufacturing industries, because the industries were recoded between the 1986 and 1989 surveys. Starting with the 1990 edition, greater noncomparability occurred at the 3-digit level of detail (tables A-1, A-5, A-6, and A-10) because of more extensive recoding. However, the numerous industry title changes did not affect the comparability of the 1990 and 1987 occupational estimates for total nonmanufacturing.
For the reasons outlined above, estimates in the tables of this 1993 report and the 1990 report should be compared with those for 1987 (and earlier years) only after consulting the 1987 SIC revisions to determine industry comparability.
