Minority Women Workers: A Statistical Overview. (Revised.)
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
The status of minority women workers in 1976 is examined, particularly in relationship to their white counterparts, under the following topic headings: (1) labor force participation; (2) unemployment status; (3) reasons for unemployment; (4) unemployment during the recession; (5) occupations; (6) marital status; (7) women heads of families; (8) working mothers; (9) children of working mothers; (10) education; (11) employment status of high school dropouts; and (12) earnings. Many of the tables of data are reported in terms of or comparison to one or more of the following variables: race; age; sex; income level; marital status; type of family; age of children; and/or figures from previous years of study. It is concluded that the unemployment rate for minority adult women is still excessively high (11.4% compared to 7.1% for white adult women) but that they experienced greater proportional increases in employment in 1976 than their white counterparts.
