Relationships Between Changing Residence Location and Labor Force Performance for Black New Resident Households for an Inner Suburb.
Sutker, Sara Smith
The objective of the study is to examine the effects which buying and moving to a house in a middle-class suburb may have on a black family: the extent to which the head and spouse are fully employed, the occupational level of their jobs, and whether workplaces are located in areas of expanding opportunity. Interviews were conducted in 1971 among 155 black husband-wife families who had moved from St. Louis to purchased homes in the suburb of University City in 1969. They differ from their neighbors principally by being younger, with expanding families more likely headed by a person with a blue-collar occupation. They are better educated than their inner city counterparts and more of the wives are employed. Statistical tables are provided in support of these and other conclusions. (AG)
