New projects and LFP bleg

I’m starting a new project where I need women’s labor force participation rates in the 50s and 60s in America. In particular, I need them disaggregated by state, race, and year. I have a few solutions, but would be very excited if anyone could offer others.

Here is what I know exists:

  • FRED has LFP for women for the whole country from 1948 to present
  • IPUMS has a representative sample of microdata that I can aggregate up to the level I need (from 1952 onward, I think)
