The Commission gathered data on working women from the US Census in North Dakota and published the statistics in its report. There were 208,196 women in North Dakota in 1960. One important notation was that the median age of women workers in 1960 was 11 years older than that of women workers in 1940 indicating that many women waited until their children were in high school before going to work.
Some of the statistics are presented here.
