The effects of industry employment shifts on U.S. wage structure, 1979-1995

The trend toward increasing U.S. wage inequality during the 1980s is well documented. I investigate the role of employment shifts from goods-producing to service-producing industries in contributing to increased inequality during the period 1979-1995. Earlier analyses revealed that average earnings are lower, and earnings inequality is higher, for service-producing workers than for goods-producing workers. For both reasons, and increasing share of service employment may increase earnings inequality. I analyses the effect of broad industry employment shifts by using a recently developed ...

The Tenth District's expanding service sector

The proliferation of service jobs in the nation has received much attention. While the manufacturing sector has suffered substantial job losses during the current business cycle, job growth in services has been brisk. Because the service sector comprises a diverse collection of service industries, there is considerable confusion about what kinds of jobs the service industries are creating and what factors will affect the outlook for the service sector.> In the Tenth District, service industry jobs have grown even faster than in the nation. As the service sector becomes a bigger share of the ...

What's hampering job growth in the District's services sector?

Employment growth in the Tenth District has fallen behind the national rate in 1999 for the first time in ten years. Although all economic sectors have been experiencing slower job growth, the services sector, due to its size, has played perhaps the most important role in the slowdown of overall employment growth in the district. While services employment elsewhere in the nation continues to grow rapidly, the district has witnessed very little job expansion in services so far in 1999 (Chart 1). In fact, the district services sector has added jobs during the first seven months of this year at ...

Modelling U.S. services trade flows: a cointegration-ECM approach

The U.S. service surplus soared from near zero in 1985 to about $60 billion in 1992, offsetting about two thirds of the goods trade deficit. Could this merely reflect improvement in data collection? Or does this mean U.S. services industries are more competitive internationally than goods industries? Is the services surplus likely to continue to rise? This paper estimates a forecastable model of U.S. services trade to address the above questions. We find that data improvement actually had a negative net impact on the services surplus, since it affected imports more than exports. Instead, the ...
