Current Population Reports, Series P-23 n 133 Mar 1984
This report contains data on the annual earnings of husbands and wives and their combined earnings as married couples. A narrative summarizing findings precedes each group of related charts and tables. Figures 1A through 1C and tables 1A through 1D classify the earnings of married couples, husbands, and wives by weeks of work and full-time/part-time status for 1981. Figures 2A and 2B and tables 2A through 2D provide data on the earnings of married couples, husbands, and wives by occupation of longest job in 1981. Figures 3A through 3C and tables 3A through 3D contain earnings data for married couples, husbands, and wives by their educational attainment level. Figure 4 and tables 4A through 5B use the age of the husband and wife and presence of own children as major classifiers. The data in figure 5 and table 6 show wives with earnings greater than their husbands. The final figure and final four tables, 7A through 8B, present mean earnings figures for husbands and wives working year round, full time. Mean earnings are shown by age, occupation, and educational attainment. Appendixes include definitions and information on source and reliability of the estimates. (YLB)
