Abstract

Census and Current Population Survey data for employed males in the U.S. Labor Force as tabulated by color, education and occupation are examined for the years 1960-70. Comparisons showed that while the racial differentials on occupation and education were reduced by 1970, the proportion of the remaining occupational gap which was due to educational level had actually increased. This suggests that the attenuation of job discrimination may have had a more significant role than the closing of the racial educational gap. Policy implications are that it is important to maintain efforts to further reduce educational inequality to reduce the remaining occupational differences. At the same time, there are reasons to believe that much of the remaining occupational differential continued to be due to outright discrimination in the job market.
