Work Experience of the Population in 1973.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
From four tables compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it was demonstrated that, for the first time, the number of Americans with work experience exceeded 100 million. The number of 16-year-olds and over who worked increased by 3.2 million. A record 54 percent of all women in the population worked in 1973; nearly one-third of them worked part-time and accounted for over half of the rise in the number of women with work experience. About 1.8 million more persons worked all year at usually full-time jobs in 1973 than in 1972. The number of persons unemployed for one week or more in 1973 decreased by almost 800,000 over the year to 14.5 million. A greater proportion of Negroes than whites were unemployed at some time during the year. The tables from which the data were summarized were: work experience by extent of employment and sex, extent of work experience during the year by race and sex, extent of unemployment during the year by sex, and extent of unemployment during the year by race and sex. All data were for persons 16 years old or over during 1972 and 1973. (Author/AG)
