Native Americans in the Labor Force: Hunting for an Accurate Measure.
Kleinfeld, Judith; Kruse, John A.
Monthly Labor Review, v105 n7 p47-51 Jul 1982
The standard definition of unemployment results in a severe underestimation of Native Americans. Availability of local employment opportunities determines whether they actively look for work. Also, significant numbers choose to work intermittently. It is, therefore, difficult to measure Native American labor force participation. (JOW)
