Married Persons Dominate The Work Force, Accordjrig To Survey WASHINofW - 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 reported. 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 percent. 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 The Durham filtv rvmmiiniu cm, terOiiarter registration througrjuay 16,1981.

I 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 ing dramatically. 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. Average (median) an nual income of married-!
