This report examines the employment patterns of private companies in the Milwaukee metropolitan area with 100 or more employees, utilizing computerized summaries of EEO-l annual reports filed with the U.S. Equal Opportunities Employment Commission. Each year these companies are required to report on their total labor force, minorities and women employed by nine occupational groupings. The data are provided to identify occupational shifts, progress toward a diversified labor force and challenges facing Milwaukee area employers and workers. The greatest job growth in larger Milwaukee area companies was reported for college-trained professional jobs. Larger companies reported a net increase of 6.251 workers in professional jobs. Nearly 40 percent of the net growth in professional jobs occurred in Milwaukee County, in contrast to the managerial job growth which occurred almost entirely in the outlying counties. Other occupational areas showing substantial growth included service workers, laborers, operatives and sales workers
