Employment Profiles of Minorities and Women in the SMSA's of 20 Large Cities, 1971. Research Report No. 43.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Washington, DC.
The report reflects the employment status of women and minorities among companies with 100 or more employees in the Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas of: Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Cleveland; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Los Angeles-Long Beach; Memphis, Tennessee-Arkansas; Miami; Newark; New Orleans; New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey; St. Louis, Missouri-Illinois; San Francisco-Oakland; Seattle-Everett; and Washington, D.C.-Maryland-Virginia. Detailed employment data were obtained from 1972 EEO-1 Reports filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Participation rates were examined for females, blacks, Spanish surnames Americans, Asian Americans, and American Indians. Although employment of women and minorities has generally increased between 1970 and 1972, the survey showed unbalanced occupational distribution and income for women and minorities. Twice the proportion of minority as Anglo women held positions in the laborer and service worker categories. Differentials between occupational distributions of Anglo and minority women were the greatest in Memphis and New Orleans and for Anglo and minority males in Memphis and Dallas. Blacks realized representation gains in the white collar field and Spanish surnamed Americans in the laborer category. Almost 70 percent of Asians were white collar workers; approximately two-thirds of American Indians were blue collar/service workers. (EA)
