Women's Labor Force Participation--A Look at Some Residential Patterns

Rural women--roughly one-third of the U.S. women--experience much less labor force activity than their urban counterparts. This study provides no support for the speculation that women in rural areas would be affected by greater opportunities for labor market activity. Conversely, the supply characteristics of rural women, although different in some respects from urban women, indicate a potentially large untapped resource for American labor.

The labor force participation of mature American women is highly variable. Not only is there variation among women as to whether there is participation at a given point in time, but among working women, the nature or extent of their participation varies markedly. Five types of labor force attachment are identified on the basis of an attachment index. Each is characteristic of an important segment of women who participate in the American labor force.

Women and the American Occupational Structure

This report explains the labor force participation patterns of American women. The report contains both a literature survey and an empirical analysis of women's labor force participation. Based on data from longitudinal surveys for a statistical sample of mature American women, the general focus of this research is on economic models of female labor force participation. More specifically, the research explores supply and demand conditions related to employment patterns of mature women. The supply conditions pertain to personal attributes of females such as their attitudes, education, ethnicity, and number of children. The demand conditions concern characteristics of the job and labor-environment and include female earnings and general economic conditions of the market place.
