Shultz under 13 contracts. The study points out that although output per man-hour year productivity changes rnag ed from a decline of 2.8 per cent in 1958 to an increase of about 10 percent in 1962. Fluctuations in output ac count for most of the changes in productivity. The 1958 de cline reflected a recession-in duced production cutback of more than 25 percent, while the 1962 increase occurred when output rose by over 25 percent after the 1961 reces sion. Output per man-hour for production workers alone in creased at an average of 4.5 percent annually. This measure was both smaller and steadier than the measures for all em ployees, largely because pro duction worker man-hours tend to follow changes in out put more closely than nonpro duction worker man-hours.
