US Employment to Population Ratio Gender Convergence

I ran some projections for the US employment to population ratio by gender, and the findings suggest that a convergence in labor participation by genders could occur by 2015. Gender participation in the US workforce has been steadily converging since 1948.

By taking the most explanatory variables in a linear model, it always helps to come up with a good projection result. However, lurking variables may affect it.

Good job Bill..wow..such a nice projection...impressive :)

Hi Anvit, no doubt the forecast provided is too simplistic -- on the other hand, the forecast relies upon over 60 years of data -- clearly, the employment rates between women and men are and have been converging in the meantime -- thanks for the comment...
