Work Experience of the Population in 1970.
Young, Anne M.; Michelotti, Kopp
Monthly Labor Review, Dec 1971 with supplementary tables
Based on the latest survey of work experience of the population, this article presents highlights of the survey, discusses the extent of employment, and analyzes the rise in unemployment with respect to age, sex, race, and other factors. Among the highlights noted were: (1) Over 95 million men and women 16 years old and above looked for work at some time during 1970, (2) The 1970 labor force increase was proportionately less than the population increase, (3) Six out of 10 women who headed families worked during the year, (4) One-half of all married women had jobs at some time during the year, and (5) 15.3 percent of all who worked or looked for work were unemployed at some time during the year, the largest proportion in several years.
