Using data from various United States and New Zealand censuses and drawing on theories of industrial transformation, this paper examines how women's occupational employment changed during the 1970's. Shift-share analysis is used to decompse changes n occupational employment into three components: (1) industrial shift efficiency; (2) occupational mix effects ; and (3) interaction effects. Results show that industrial transformation, per se, (i.e., the growth of service sector industries) was a less important factor in creating occupational opportunities for American and New Zealand women than changes in the technical division of labor within industries.
