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.
