Abstract

In this study, the socioeconomic correlates of labor force participation of metro, non-farm-nonmetro, and farm women are identified. Data from a large statewide mail survey (N = 5880 women) in Kentucky are examined to compare personal, socioeconomic, and family characteristics and the occupations and industries of women in the labor force. Findings regarding correlates of labor force participation indicate that family and status are the most influential correlates of metro and nonmetro women's labor force participation, while status factors are more influential for farm women. -Authors
