Dual Careers: A Longitudinal Study of Labor Market Experience of Women. Volume One.
Shea, John R.; And Others
This report describes the initial stage of a 5-year longitudinal study of the labor market behavior of women between 30 and 44 years of age. Since 1967, personal interviews and questionnaires have been used to gather data relating work experiences to various social, economic, and psychological factors for a representative national sample. The sample consists of 5,083 individuals, of whom 3,456 are white. This report includes background information, labor force participation and employment patterns, occupational and geographic mobility, and work attitudes of the women in the sample as collected in mid-1967. In subsequent surveys, detailed information will be obtained on current labor force and employment status and on labor market experience and income during the period since each preceding survey. In this way a complete 5-year work history will be collected, including a record of changes in variables believed to influence labor market decisions. (BH)
