post-industrial society is a stage in a society's development during which the economy transitions from one that primarily provides goods to one that primarily provides services. In other words, the service sector (e.g. nurses, teachers, researchers, social workers, lawyers, etc) accounts for more of the economic growth and wealth than the manufacturing sector (e.g. construction workers, textile mills, food manufacturers, production workers, etc). The economic transformation associated with a post-industrial society subsequently transforms society as a whole.Information, services, and advanced technology are more important in post-industrial societies than manufacturing tangible goods. As the name suggests, a post-industrial society follows an industrialized society, which focused on mass producing goods with the aide of machinery. Post-industrialization can easily be seen in places like Europe and the United States, which were affected by the Industrial Revolution before other places around the world. The United States was the first country to have more than fifty percent of its workers employed in service sector jobs.
