There are significant variations in the intercounty migration rates among the 12 sampled, major occupational groups of experienced labor force participants during April 1, 1949 to April 1, 1950. Professional workers had significantly higher rates than ten major occupational groups; the rates among the detailed occupational classes varied significantly, male workers moved more frequently than female workers; and distance has a marked effect upon the relative frequency of movement, indicating clearly that the transiency of the different occupational classes varies substantially with distance.
