Jobs Aren't Enough: Toward a New Economic Mobility for Low-Income Families

By Roberta Rehner Iversen; Annie Laurie Armstrong | Go to book overview

Appendix B
Industry, Firm, Occupation, and Wage
Information and Projections

THE THREE TABLES in Appendix B provide detailed information about the industries, occupations (jobs), wages and wage adequacy in the seventy-four firms in which the key parents are employed during the research period, 1998 to mid-2003. The data presented in all three tables are discussed in full in Chapter 6.

Table B.1 presents descriptive data on characteristics of the parents' firms and jobs. Table B.1 also provides results of analyses of parents' wage adequacy in all seventyfour jobs, according to both federal poverty level (FPL) and Self-Sufficiency Standard (SSS) metrics.

Table B.2 hones in on wages and wage adequacy, providing data on change in both measures between each parent's first post-training job and last known job. Table B.2 also summarizes changes in wages and wage adequacy between the first and last jobs for the parent group as a whole. Taken together, Table B.1 and B.2 provide a wideangle perspective on economic mobility in the context of the parents' jobs, firms, and industries.

Table B.3 looks at what the parents' mobility might be like in the future, through national and city data on projected employment patterns to 2012 and wage patterns in the parents' occupations and industries to 2003.

The data in the three tables are drawn from the ethnographic interviews, workforce program administrative records, firm information and promotional material, the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS 2002), the U.S. Census Bureau, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor.
