Teenage Unemployment in Two Selected Rural Counties in the South. Center Research and Development Report No. 4.
Rogers, Charles H.; And Others
Eighty-one tables were included in this study which examined teenage unemployment in a two-county rural area of North Carolina. Specifically, this report considered labor market experience of Negroes and Caucasians, personality variables, social and family characteristics, community factors, and educational and training opportunities. A structured interview questionnaire was developed for school dropouts, business and industry, and educational institutions. The interviews were made by trained personnel. The study concluded that the unemployment rate for teenagers was not high, and that the difference between Negro and Caucasian jobless rates were not as great as anticipated. There was some discrimination in the labor market, but the results were not conclusive. Occupational training and level of schooling were correlated with a favorable labor market experience. (BC)
