Summary

Women of Hispanic origin are one of the fastest growing groups in the United States. In 1983 there were 5.1 million Hispanic women aged 16 years and older in the United States, but by the end of 1993 they numbered nearly 8 million. Women of Mexican origin remained the largest subgroup (4.7 million), followed by those of Puerto Rican (919,000) and Cuban (494,000) origin. Of the 58.4 million women in the labor force in 1993, 4.1 million were of Hispanic origin, with Cuban-origin women participating to the greatest degree. At present, women of Hispanic origin participate in the labor force to a lesser degree than Black and White women, but their labor force participation is expected to reach 58 percent by 2005 to 7 million. Most working Hispanic women are in technical, sales, and administrative support occupations, and Hispanic women are less likely to be in management or professional specialty jobs than non-Hispanic-origin women. In 1991, Hispanic women averaged only 78 percent of what non-Hispanic employed females earned. Nearly half (46 percent) of the working Hispanic-origin women over 25 years of age had less than a high school diploma, although there has been a steady rise in the numbers of Hispanic women enrolled in higher education. Eight tables summarize data about labor force participation. (SLD)
