Abstract : This report provides an occupation-based cost profile of the manufacturing activities that contribute to defense production. We base our analysis on direct and indirect industry shipments to DoD, the number of workers in each manufacturing occupation, and the median pay by occupation. We cover 91 industries as defined by the 3-digit Standard Industrial Classification system and 287 Bureau of Labor Standards-defined Occupations. Our results reflect the activities of all defense-related manufacturing industries in the domestic economy, including prime contractors, subtier suppliers, and development and production activities ranging from major systems to spare parts. We report occupation cost profiles for all industries combined, for industries grouped on the basis of their degree of defense involvement, and for selected individual industries and industrial sectors.
