The Female Worker in Canada.
As one in a series of studies dealing with selected aspects of the labor force in Canada, this monograph reviews the historical trends in the labor force activity of women over the course of this century. In particular, it focuses on the married women who have entered the labor market in increasing numbers in recent decades and whose activity is a matter of widespread interest both for economic as well as social and cultural reasons. Based on census data, the report includes major sections on: (1) The Working Life Cycle--participation profiles for women based on age, residence, marital status, and fertility and stage of family formation, (2) Other Influences Affecting the Labor Force Participation of Married Women--income of husband, education of wife, husband's employment status, and financial contribution of working wives, and (3) Earnings Differences Between Men and Women.
