New Perspectives on the Decline of U.S. Manufacturing Employment

Teresa Fort (), Justin Pierce () and Peter K. Schott

Working Papers from U.S. Census Bureau, Center for Economic Studies

Abstract: We use relatively unexplored dimensions of US microdata to examine how US manufacturing employment has evolved across industries, rms, establishments, and regions. We show that these data provide support for both trade- and technology-based explanations of the overall decline of employment over this period, while also highlighting the di-culties of estimating an overall contribution for each mechanism. Toward that end, we discuss how further analysis of these trends might yield sharper insights.
