Bloomquist, Leonard E.
Rural Sociology, v55 n2 p199-213 Sum 1990
Analyzes concentration of employment opportunities for different socioeconomic groups in different local labor-market areas (LMAs). Uses regression analysis of 1980 census data. Finds rural LMAs offer fewer opportunities. Gender differences in occupational concentrations relate to industrial composition of labor market. Racial difference is indicated by Blacks' higher rates working in large, densely populated LMAs. (TES)
