Black-White Differences in Married Female Labor Supply: Estimates from the Houghteling Data of 1925
This article examines differences in the labor force participation rates of black and white married women using a micro-level data set describing low-income Chicago families in 1925. The higher participation rate of black women in the sample is explained in part by higher annual earnings of white husbands and by significant racial differences in responses to family characteristics.
