Homemaking as an Occupational Plan: Evidence from a National Longitudinal Study.
Falkowski, Carolyn K.; Falk, William W.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v22 n2 p227-42 Apr 1983
Using data from the National Longitudinal Study of the 1972 High School Class, young Black and White women who expected to be homemakers (at age 30) were disproportionately represented by fathers with lower occupational status, nonemployed mothers, rural residences, nonacademic track placement, and lower scholastic performance. As expected, racial differences were found. (Author/HLM)
