Occupational Segregation by Sex: Trends and Prospects.
Blau, Francine D.; Hendricks, Wallace E.
Journal of Human Resources, v14 n2 p197-210 Spr 1979
Investigates postwar trends in occupational segregation. Finds segregation increased slightly between 1950-60 as predominantly female clerical/professional jobs increased. Occupation mix changes (1960-70) were neutral in impact, but male inflow into female professions and female inflow into male sales/clerical jobs produced modest segregation drop. Predicts little segregation reduction for 1970-85. (Author/CSS)
