A benchmark survey of engineering employment shows the picture to be brighter than supposedÂ¿but still sobering. Results confirm many past conclusions concerning the geographic nature of the problem and highlight the degree of severity existing in mid-1971. Overall unemployment for U.S. engineering professionals who are members of engineering societies is 3.0 percent. One significant fact to emerge is that electronics engineers have an unemployment rate equivalent to that of engineers in the aerospace field; both are the highest among all engineering disciplines Â¿more than 5 percent.
