TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE AND WOMEN WORKERS IN THE OFFICE 15 of an innovation; they may occur in entirely different firms, industries, or locations or entirely different occupations from those actually using the innovation; or they may be entirely unanticipated. Furthermore, as with output changes, employment effects are qualitative as well as quantitative, and qualitative change is always much more difficult to measure.

History provides examples of each of these effects. S. agriculture, rapid technological change linked with modest growth in demand for output led to substantial displacement of workers from the agricultural sector. In 1900 nearly 12 million workers, or 40 percent of the labor force, were employed in agriculture; today, agricultural employment is just over 3 million, or 3 percent of the labor force. In automobile manufacturing, rapid technological change led to substantial reduction of automobile prices and to increased demand and greater employment in the early to mid-twentieth century.

The increase in women workers accounted for 60 percent of the growth in the labor force in the past decade and is expected to account for 70 percent of the growth in the next decade. The range of occupations in which women worked also grew, as occupations held by both men and women grew faster in the last decade than the traditionally female occupations, and women entered many predominantly male occupations formerly closed to them. Table 1-2 shows changes in the distribution of women workers across occupations for the past three decades.
