Black women in these occupations was positively associated
with the disadvantage of these women in the labor market.
The strongest association between Black womens labor
market disadvantage and rates of occupational participation
would be observed for boarding and lodging house keeping.
The disadvantage of Black women in the labor market was
positively associated with the involvement of these women in
retail stores and
in eating an drinking places

were consistent with the disadvantage theory.
