Employment Population Ratio

The general upward trend from the early '60s was mostly due to women entering the workforce. As an example, in 1964 women were about 32% of the workforce, today the percentage is close to 50%.
This measure fell slightly in July to 59.4%, the lowest level since the early '80s. This also shows the weak recovery following the 2001 recession - and the current cliff diving!
