The purpose of this report is to present an analysis of the survey data collected by the Center for Applied Urban Research concerning Nebraska women and their participation in the labor force.

The survey, conducted in November and December, 1978, involved a random telephone survey of 1,640 women between the ages of 18 and 64. The survey focused on three broad areas: 1) current labor force characteristics and other questions related to current work, 2) attitudes and perceptions related to work and working women, and 3) needs for·training and information. The first three sections of this report present these data. Some additional analyses of responses comparing prospective workers and current workers are included in a fourth section. The final section presents a brief summary of the report. A methodological appendix includes detailed information on the sample as well as the questionnaire and code.
