    Abstract

    The figures which accompany this article represent the occupational classification of the working population in Scotland as revealed by the decennial censuses 1851-1971. One of these censuses is missing, namely 1941, because of the Second World War. There are also some doubts about the exact classification into the different occupational categories. They may not always be consistent from one year to
    another, and it is obvious that the category "indefinite" is a large and fluctuating one. Nevertheless, the examination of the figures shows some fairly clear trends, which are distinctive enough to stand independently of the possibility of any errors of collection and classification.
