The results of this study of the Johannesburg region confirm that deindustrialisation results in professionalisation rather than polarisation. It then proceeds to examine this outcome by analysing the statistical relationship between economic restructuring and the changing occupational structure. The results suggest that changes in the overall occupational structure were caused by changes within each economic sector rather than by the growth of service sector employment and the decline of manufacturingsector employment
