Administrative Values of the American Women State Public Administrators: An Empirical Study.
This study examines the administrative qualities held by women who are state public service personnel. The value sectors identified in the study are political acuity, professional efficiency and managerial competency. Primary empirical data was collected through survey. The empirical data analysis of the study conclude that though many women have entered into public administrative services in the post-1970 period, gender variation is significant with regard to the nature of the jobs to which they are fitted and with regard to their upward career-mobility. Women are being paid less as their jobs are considered less significant. But no substantive difference was noted in respect to the administrative values and competency of female and male public administrators. Contains over 150 references. (EH)
