Summary

This paper from the Bureau of Labor Statistics provides information on current status and historical trends in the employment of Hispanic women. Some of the findings include the following: (1) the Hispanic women's population increased by 52 percent from 1990-1999, compared with 17 percent for black women and 7 percent for white women; (2) 9 percent of the 65 million women in the civilian labor force in 1999 were of Hispanic origin; (3) the female Hispanic labor force is projected to grow from 5.7 million in 1998 to about 8.5 million in 2008; (4) although Hispanic women were concentrated in service jobs, they nearly doubled their employment in the high-paying, highly-skilled management and professional positions between 1990 and 1999; (5) Hispanic women had low median earnings, mostly as a result of their concentration in jobs with lower than average wages; (6) a third of Hispanic women in the labor force lacked a high school diploma and only 15 percent were college graduates; and (7) of all Hispanic families, those maintained by women in 1998 had the lowest median income.
