This paper provides an empirical examination of the labour market transitions of married women over time by analysing spells of nonwork, part-time work and full-time work. Using data from the young cohort of the National Longitudinal Survey 1968-1991, it estimates two-way competing risk models for each of the three labor market states. The results document that the determinants of spell lengths and of the reasons for spell terminations vary across labor market states. In addition, both the labor market state of the spell and the labor market state that ends the spell are relevant in shaping the spell length.
