Female Unemployment in Four Urban Centers. A Study of Female Unemployment in Newcastle, Wollongong, Geelong and Elizabeth.
Australian Dept. of Labour and National Service, Perth.
A special survey was conducted of all females registered as unemployed in the Employment Districts of Newcastle and Wallongong in New South Wales, Geelong in Victoria and Elizabeth in South Australia. In addition to the principal findings and conclusions of the study, this report includes an examination of the main reasons for female unemployment together with a consideration of possible ways to reduce the problem. The results indicated that the incidence of registered female unemployment in the four areas was relatively severe and that the insufficiency of opportunities was mainly attributed to an imbalance in the industrial structure. The more detailed results of the study are presented separately for each of the four areas and include relevant statistical tables. (Author/GEB)
