Stafford explores differences in intergenerational job mobility for today's working men and women

a PSC In The News reference

"Wages get a bump, thanks to women entering the workforce" - Michigan News. 06/05/2017.

Using PSID data Frank Stafford and Ping Li compare the occupations of today's men and women age 30-55 to those held by their parents. While Stafford and Li found an increase in pay of about 22% for men and women, compared to their parents, they found the biggest differences in types and economic values of jobs for women. For instance, women more than tripled their employment in STEM fields, with 3.8% employed in science, math, and technology jobs compared to 0.9% of their mothers.
