This study examines the extent of post-school occupational training among middle-aged men. White men were almost two times more likely than black men to participate in formal occupational training. However, these differences disappear when racial variations in personal characteristics and differences in prior training are controlled. The author argues for public policy intervention to offset the earlier disadvantage of blacks.
