The Labor Market Experience of 14-21-Year-Olds. Research on Youth Employment and Employability Development. Youth Knowledge Development Report 2.6.
Endriss, J. R.; Froomkin, Joseph
This report summarizes data from the 1976 Survey of Income and Education, concerning the labor force participation, work experience, earnings, and unemployment of 32.8 million youth aged 14 to 21. Special attention is paid in the report to the experience of the poor, minorities, and women. Following an initial narrative summary of survey findings in such areas as youth labor force participation, length of commitment to the work force, work experience, mean time worked, earnings, occupations of young workers, length and methods of job search, workers who found no jobs, and public and private employers, conclusions are drawn concerning the special needs of minority populations. The bulk of the report is comprised of 1207 tables presenting various breakdowns of data on the above-mentioned topics according to such factors as sex, age, race, and income level. (Related youth knowledge and development reports are available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
