Economic and Employment Status of Asian-Pacific Women

This report deals with the employment and economic status of Asian and Pacific women in the United States. Data collected for a set of socioeconomic variables were analyzed and interpreted. Variables were analyzed by specific Asian ethnicity and by age. Data aggregated at the standard metropolitan statistical area level were used whenever possible. The topics considered were: (1) the economic status of Asian American women as reflected by labor force participation patterns; (2) the economic, employment, and marital status of Asian American women; (3) factors which depress the earning power of Asian American women; (4) occupational stratification theory; (5) occupational distribution and age cohorts; (6) occupational mobility; and (7) employment distribution by industry. The data analyses were used to identify areas for future research. Tables of data are included in the report. (Mk)
