“Highly recommended.” —American Reference Books Annual
Women’s lives have changed dramatically over the past few decades. Behind the change is the rise of a new economy based on services rather than manufacturing, which rewards the educated and encourages women to go to work. American Women: Who They Are and How They Live brings you all-important demographic data showing the size of the female population, its changing age distribution, rising educational attainment, and evolving racial composition. It also includes details on the characteristics of Asians, labor force projections, population projections, a chapter on women’s time use, and a new chapter comparing the attitudes of men and women.
American Women is designed for easy use. It is divided into ten chapters, organized alphabetically, on attitudes education, health, income, labor force, living arrangements, population, spending, time use, and wealth. To help you compare and contrast the data, where possible identically structured tables appear in its companion volume, American Men.
