Multidimensional Indexes of Occupational Segregation: A Critical Assessment.
Watts, Martin
Evaluation Review, v12 n4 p461-82 Aug 1997
Properties of three multidimensional measures of occupational segregation by race and gender are compared. The generalization of the Gini index (D. Boisso and others, 1994) is shown to be flawed, and calculations with six groups of U.S. Department of Labor data show that the generalization of the index of T. Karmel and M. Maclachlan by J. Silber (1992) is the superior approach. (SLD)
