WAGES -- GENERAL SOURCES (all occupations and worker types)
See list of the most common occupations for women in 1910 and 1920 (source: Census Bureau).
NOTE: If you are looking for total U.S. family income data for 1929 that is not limited to just salary and wage income, we recommend a 1934 Brookings Institution report titled America's Capacity to Consume. It is not yet available to read online; check your local library.
In addition to the links below, we recommend the book America's Capacity to Consume, published in 1934 by the Brookings Institution. It presents detailed analysis of personal and household income as well as consumer expenditures in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
