  title={Employment in the Atomic Energy Field.},
  author={Maurice P. Moylan},
Employment in the atomic energy field continued to grow in 1971, according to a survey made by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.1 A major factor behind this growth was the expanding peaceful applications of atomic energy, mainly the greater use of nuclear power by private electric utility companies. Employment in Government-owned establishments declined for the fifth straight year. Overall, employment increased by 1.8 percent in the year ending in May 1971.
