Employment Profiles of Women and Minorities in 23 Metropolitan Areas, 1974. Research Report No. 49.
Hannan, Joan, Ed.
This study, which analyzes employment patterns of women and minorities in 23 Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), is based on reports (required by the EEOC--Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) from private employers (EEO-1 Reports) and State and local governments (EEO-4 Reports). For each SMSA, EEO-1 data are presented for 1970 and 1974 and EEO-4 data for 1974. All profiles analyze the employment status of women, 19 the status of blacks, 11 the status of Hispanics, and 1 the employment status of Asian Americans. (Criteria for selecting the 23 areas included large populations--at least 340,000 persons, significant incidence of one or more minorities, and geographic dispersion.) The 23 SMSA profiles included are for the following cities: Atlanta, Georgia; Baltimore, Maryland; Birmingham, Alabama; Chicago, Illinois; Cincinnati, Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana; Cleveland, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; El Paso, Texas; Fresno, California; Houston, Texas; Los Angeles-Long Beach, California; Memphis, Tennessee-Arkansas-Mississippi; Miami, Florida; Mobile, Alabama; New Orleans, Louisiana; New York, New York-New Jersey; Newark, New Jersey; Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Portsmouth, Virginia-North Carolina; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-New Jersey; St. Louis, Missouri-Illinois; San Antonio, Texas; San Jose, California; and Tucson, Arizona. The appendix contains a definition of terms and description of the EEO-1 and EEO-4 surveys. (HD)
