|A=||+ B||+ C||– D|
|Years||Service occupation employment intensity of high school* workforce||High school* intensity of service employment||Service intensity of employment||High school* intensity of overall workforce|

** Decomposition based on changes of logged values of A = B + C − D, where A, B, C, and D refer to variables with those column heads. These are CPS ORG tabulations using Autor-Dorn occupation coding crosswalk. Service occupations exclude public safety occupations. Employment is hours-weighted. Employment trends are adjusted to remove inconsistencies due to coding changes in 1983 and 2003. Agriculture is excluded.
