It is a pleasure to announce that the two occupational data studies created within the project WeCanIt are out. They cover the whole post-WWII transition (1945-1947; 1947-1955) in the Zone A of the Upper Adriatic and they are published by the Social Science Data Archives (ADP) of the University of Ljubljana.
The first data study, Historical data of the labour force, 1945-1947: Zone A-AMG-Venezia Giulia (Allied Military Government), collects all the consistent data on the labour market produced by 10 Labour Offices of Zone A-AMG (Allied Military Government) Venezia Giulia from August 1945 to September 1947.
The second data study, Historical data of the labour force, 1947-1955: Zone A-FTT (Free Territory of Trieste), gathers data on the labour market produced by the Labour Offices of the Zone A-FTT (Free Territory of Trieste) from September 1947 to 1954 and of the territory of Trieste-Trst from 1954 to 1955.
In both surveys, most of the data is organised in two tables: the ‘economic sectors’ table shows the data relating to the number of people (men, women, and juveniles) registered, removed from records, employed and unemployed for six economic sectors. The ‘professional qualifications’ table contains the data relating to the number of people (men, women, and juveniles) registered, removed from records, employed and unemployed within 23 professions. The datasets were realised from archival sources preserved at the Archivio di Stato di Trieste and the National Archives and Records Administration and are the first in-depth study on the labour market throughout the whole period of administration of an AMG and during the transition to the rule of a post-WWII Republic.
The ADP was established in 1997 as an organisational unit of the Social Sciences Research Institute at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana. It is a national research infrastructure for social sciences whose primary mission is to manage data and data services support for research, education, and general well-being. The ADP is a service provider for Slovenia at the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA). It is a domain-specific, trustworthy repository and holds Core Trust Seal certificate. The ADP’s digital preservation mission is to ensure and promote sustainable services of ingesting, storage, and access to quality research data from Slovenian social sciences and broader, with potential for secondary analysis.
