Racial Discrimination in Occupations; Perceived and Actual.
Turner, Castellano B.; Turner, Barbara F.
Phylon, v42 n4 p322-34 Dec 1981
A study of perceived discrimination by race and by sex for each of 21 occupations was compared with actual percentages of Blacks in each field. The study suggested that: (1) perception of opportunity corresponded to actual structure of opportunity; and (2) both a change in the social structure and individual belief systems is needed to further equal opportunity.
