Title: CHARACTERISTICS AND RESIDENTIAL PATTERNS OF ENERGY-RELATED WORK FORCES IN THE NORTHERN GREAT PLAINS
Authors: Wieland, James S.

Issue Date: 1979-07
Abstract: The socioeconomic characteristics of construction and operating work forces at energy related facilities in the Northern Great Plains were analyzed. A primary interest was to explain differences in local hire rates and settlement patterns on the basis of characteristics of the project and site area. In general, it was found that local hire rates for operating workers can be expected to be substantially greater than for construction workers when differences in project and site characteristics are taken into account. Nonlocal construction workers were found to live in larger communities and to commute substantially greater distances to the project site than nonlocal operating workers.
