This report on women at work presents statistics of the women 16 years of age and over with a gainful occupation. Women are classified by age, race and nativity, nativity of parents, marital condition, and occupation. Also presented is the family relationship of the women at work, classifying their relationship to the head of the family and to the number of other breadwinners in the family.

The focus is on whom and how many are the women engaged in gainful occupations rather than the conditions of their employment. The importance of that subject led Congress to pass an act providing for a special investigation of the industrial, social, moral, educational, and physical condition of women and child workers in the U.S. A primary object in preparing this report was that the data obtained by the Census might contribute to the special investigation authorized by Congress.
