Abstract

This paper illustrates the demographer's perspective of labor force analysis and shows how recent methodological developments in demography, in particular in multiregional demography, can fruitfully be applied to manpower studies. First, curves of age-specific labor force participation rates are investigated and it is shown how their universal features enable one to describe the schedules by a limited number of parameters. Next, an increment-decrement table of working life is developed and compared with the conventional technique of working life table construction. Finally, an improved labor force projection model is presented.
