Understanding the changing nature of knowledge workers in an industry-level analysis is helpful to formulate industry policy. This study aims to investigate the changing of knowledge workers in Taiwan 20 manufacturing industries during 1988-2005. Empirical results are shown as follows. First, there is a trend shift from non-knowledge workers to knowledge workers in all manufacturing industry. Second, based on the shift-share analysis, the within-industry effect on increasing knowledge workers is more than the between-industry effect, especially in electric & electronic machinery industry.
