The Persistence of Female Labor Supply: Empirical Evidence and Implications.
Shaw, Kathryn
Journal of Human Resources, v29 n2 p348-78 Spr 1994
Data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (1967-87) revealed little change in persistence of female labor supply because women have tended to become continuous workers, replacing continuous nonworkers. Periods of reduced hours are now less prolonged among older women. Employment patterns now appear to develop before marriage. (SK)
