Career Patterns and Work Participation of Graduate Female Social Workers.
Herberg, Dorothy Mary Chave
This study develops tools for predicting the work participation by graduate female social workers using two main explanatory variables--"early sex role ideology" (an ideological position on future work and sex roles and early occupational aspiration) and "the sequence of marriage and professional education." These two variables were combined to form a career pattern variable and it also was used to predict amount of employment. Work participation was measured by summary measures called work ratios. Data to form these work ratios was drawn from an extensive work history included in a questionnaire sent to a sample of 1,037 women social workers. (Author)
