Study of Employment of Women in the Federal Government, 1968.
Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC.
Statistical information on full-time federal civilian white-collar employment was collected and compared with a 1966 survey to assess programs and identify areas where greater efforts must be made to assure equal opportunity for women. Data were collected from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, the 50 states, U.S. territories, and foreign countries. Grade equivalencies of pay systems were determined and occupations were classified according to positions requiring higher education or experience, positions requiring specialized education or experience, and positions requiring minimal specialized education or experience. As of October 31, 1968, a total of 1,963,870 full-time employees were reported by 104 agencies in 452 white-collar occupations, of which 34 percent were women. By October 31, 1966, a reported 33.6 percent of 1,837,062 employees were women. Women were employed in 420 occupations or 92.9 percent in 1968, and in 413 occupations or 91.4 percent in 1966. Data is indexed by agency and geographic area, general schedule and equivalent grades, special categories, and occupational group. (SB)
