Smartening up : knowledge workers in Canadian manufacturing industries / Paul Johanis.: CS31-0005/1993E-PDF

"This paper looks at changes in the knowledge intensity of manufacturing industries from 1986 to 1991. It applies a measure of industry knowledge intensity developed from the Census of Population using data on educational attainment and occupational category for the employed workforce. Individual industries are ranked and their shifting occupational mix is documented. The paper demonstrates that industries in the Canadian manufacturing sector became more knowledge intensive over the 1986 to 1991 period and that this shift is associated with increased labour productivity"--p. 3.
