Summary

In 1969 there were 30.5 million women workers (38 percent of all workers) 16 years of age and over, which represented an increase of 1.3 million since 1968. About 58 percent of the women workers were married and living with their husbands. Labor force participation was highest among mothers with school-age children only (51 percent) and lowest among those with children under 3 years of age (26 percent). The largest occupational groups were: (1) clerical (10 million), (2) service workers (4.7 million), and (3) operatives (4.5 million). The median earnings of full-time year-round workers was $4,457, or 58 percent of the year-round salary for men. About 20 percent of the women but only 8 percent of the men earned less than $3,000 while only 3 percent of the women as compared with 28 percent of the men earned $10,000 or more. These and other data concerning women workers are presented in tabular form. (SB)
