Select an Answer

There was an overall increase in college enrollment.

Correct Answer: 
No

The proportion of blue-collar jobs in the economy decreased.

Correct Answer: 
No

Increasing numbers of African American children attended racially integrated schools.

Correct Answer: 
No

There was an exodus of population from the cities to the suburbs.

Correct Answer: 
No

By the end of the period, a lower proportion of women were working outside the home than at the beginning.

Correct Answer: 
Yes

After the dramatic increase of women in the workforce during the Second World War, there were large-scale layoffs of women. Even so, women soon returned to work outside the home in large numbers, and the proportion of women in the labor force continued to grow from that time forward. So the key is not an accurate statement of a social trend between 1945 and 1970. All of the other statements are accurate descriptions of social trends during the time between 1945 and 1970.
