Effects of Demographic Variables, Perceived Spousal Support, and Gender Role Attitudes on Taiwanese Women's Employability
Lu, Luo
Journal of Career Development, v38 n3 p191-207 Jun 2011
The aim of this research was to explore demographic, familial, and attitudinal correlates of Taiwanese women's employment status. Using data from a representative nationwide sample of female workers aged 21 and above (N = 1,047), the author found that (a) the employment rate of females decreased steadily with age, with no sign of reentry into the labor market in middle adulthood; (b) the more educated women had higher employment likelihood throughout the early and middle adulthood than their less educated counterparts, whereas this trend reversed after the age of 60; (c) multivariate analysis confirmed that age, education, personal health, and family income were significant predictors of female employment. In a fast changing society, more concerted research is needed to inform public policies and human resource practices to ameliorate the challenges faced by female workers, to promote social justice and female labor participation.
