Married Persons Dominate
The Work Force,
Accordjrig To Survey
Married persons continue
to dominate the work
force, but their rhare has
been declining steadily,
the Bureau of Labor
- Statistics of the U.S.,
Department of Labor
From March, 1970 to
March, 1980, the propor
tion of the labor force
composed of married per
sons living with their
spouses fell from 69 to 61
per cent, while the share
composed of never
married and divorced per
sons rose from 24 to 33
The gradual transfor
mation of the marital
composition of the labor
force reflects - major
demographic and social
changes that have occur
red during the 1970's. For
example, half of the more
than twenty million in
crease in the labor force
during the decade was
among persons 25-34
years old, who now ac
count for more than one
of every four workers.
Many of these workers,
born during the post
World War II "baby
boom", tended either to
postpone marriage or not
to marry. Those who did
marry were more than
twice as likely to become'
divorced than- were
workers of a similar age'
ten years ago. The result is
that only 65 per cent of
workers 25-34 years old
were married in March,
1980, down from 79 per
cent a decade earlier.
This overview of the
1970s is based on data ob
tained each March as part
of the Current Population
Survey. Other relevant

findings from the survey:
The number of mar
ried women in the labor
force has soared by nearly
six million over the 1970's.
By March, 1980, 24.4
million wives were work
ing or looking for work.
About 17.5 million or
56.6 per cent of all women
with children under eigh
teen were in the labor
force in March, 1980.
Although mothers of
school-age children are
more likely to be in the
work force than those
with children under six,
the number of working
mothers with preschool
children also has been ris
One of every five
mothers in the labor force,
or a total of 3.8 million,
was maintaining her own
family. Mothers in one
parent families had a
much higher labor force
participation rate (67 per
cent) than those in two
parent families (54 per
cent). Even when children
under six were present, 55
per cent of the mothers
maintaining their own
families were in the labor
force, compared with 45
per cent of wives with
children under six. Qi
In March, 1980, 30.7
million children under
eighteen, or 53 per cent of
the total, had mothers in
the labor force. This com-;
pares with 25.5 million, or
39 per cent, who had
working mothers in 1970.
By March, 1980, 43 per
cent of all youngsters ;
below age six had mothers
in the labor force, com
pared with 29 per cent at
the outset of the 1970's.
