I develop three measures of structural change on the basis of U.S. data: changes in occupational composition, changes in input-output technical coefficients, and changes in capital coefficients. Using pooled cross-section, time-series data for 44 industries over the period from 1970 to 1990. I find that computer investment per worker has had a positive and significant effect on the degree of occupational change and changes in input and capital coefficients.
