Inequality in the Labor Market for Native American Women and the Great Recession

Jeffrey D. Burnette

American Economic Review, 2017, vol. 107, issue 5, 425-29

Abstract: This research paper builds on previous literature and documents general changes in the labor market for Native American women that occurred during the Great Recession using extracts of data from the Current Population Survey Annual Earnings file, known as the Merged Outgoing Rotation Groups (MORG). Wages, unemployment, and other labor market variables for Native American women are contrasted with those of Native American men and white women to determine the relative change in labor market inequality that occurred during the Great Recession.
