Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.The Employment Stabilization Research Institute was established at the University of Minnesota during the first years of the Great Depression to make an intensive study of the causes of unemployment, its effects upon individuals and institutions, the vocational aptitudes of a large group of unemployed, and the possibilities for re-educating and re-training those who are ill adjusted economically. The findings of the Institute, which gained international recognition, are embodied in some fifty published bulletins and articles.

They deal respectively with the economic and human aspects of the unemployment problem.This collection comprises Volume II of the Institute’s bulletin series.
