Print CXLIV

The change in employment by industry, status and gender, 1984-1987.

Pyramids are drawn, with bars shaded grey for an increase and black for a decrease, in each of the 633 mainland parliamentary constituencies, showing changing industrial structure on the equal population cartogram software by author on an Archimedes computer.

The picture is interesting but very complicated. In the city of London the number of full time jobs for women in services has risen by over 20% in three years, while male jobs in manufacturing there have been lost (in almost equal numbers but lower proportions). Similar patterns (but never quite the same) can be seen in many places. The dark spikes signifying the loss of male full-time jobs in the mining (energy) industry are distinctively clustered. There is much to be seen.

Fourth print from a series of four.
