Industry Differences in Stability of the Rate of Negro Employment.
This investigation is concerned with the ways in which the rate of Negro employment is constrained in different industries. Two types of stability in the employment of Negroes are postulated relating to an industry's responsiveness to community percent Negro, and to the organizational imperatives for a unique racial division of labor. An empirical method for classifying industries according to their stability patterns is also introduced. The results from applying this procedure indicate the presence of a very different industry distribution of Negro labor in small and large proportion Negro communities. Also, a two-step process to Negro occupational advancement is suggested. (Author)
