Quantitative Literacy and the Likelihood of Employment among Young Adults in the United States.
Rivera-Batiz, Francisco L.
Journal of Human Resources, v27 n2 p313-28 Spr 1992

Low quantitative literacy appears to be associated with the lower probability of employment among young African Americans. (SK)
