Improving Job Opportunities for Women. A Chartbook Focusing on the Progress in Business.
Shaeffer, Ruth Gilbert; Axel, Helen
This chartbook documents with extensive charts what happened between 1970-75 in improving job opportunities for women, with special emphasis on the progress made in business. Employment data come from census, payroll, report, and survey information. Section 1 considers male-female employment profiles (1970, 1975) for the whole economy. Section 2 compares the corporate sector to all other sectors, including comparative employment patterns of men and women by sector; women's share of jobs by occupation and sector in 1970, 1972, 1975; and changes in male-female employment patterns in the corporate sector (1970, 1975). The final section deals with what has been happening to women within the corporate sector. The 1970 (or 1972) and 1975 male-female employment and occupational patterns are examined from three perspectives: (1) within broad industry categories based on goods or services being produced (manufacturing; public utilities; trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; mining and construction), (2) within male-intensive versus female-intensive industries, and (3) for certain nontraditional jobs by women. Three sets of charts are presented whenever possible in this section so that the same kinds of information can be considered for companies of different sizes. (YLB)
