This study used three types of evidence to analyze the nature and cause of black economic progress in post-World War II years: (1) aggregate evidence on the timing and incidence among skill groups of changes in the relative earnings or occupational position of blacks; (2) cross- sectional evidence on the family background determinants of the socioeconomic achievement of blacks; and (3) information from company personnel offices regarding personnel policies toward black (and other) workers affected by civil rights legislation.
