The six articles in the reprint (with supplementary tables) from the October 1979 Monthly Labor Review, marking the International Year of the Child, are about children and work. Two articles examine the labor force experience of young U.S. workers in general and young black workers in particular over the past quarter century (1955-78). A third article reports on efforts to follow the experience of young workers in the labor force by means of a panel survey, while a fourth reports on the most recent experience of school graduates and dropouts in the labor market. The remaining two articles explore the effects of the work situation of adults upon children. One deals with the employment, income, and marital situations of the U.S. families in which children are growing up, and the other examines the arrangements families have effected for the care of children to permit adults to work.
