Abstract: The study of trends and structure of female labour force participation in -developing countries has attracted considerable attention over the past few ,years. Several international comparisons based on religious as well as sociocultural and demographic differentials have been made. See, for example, Youssef [23, 24 and 25], Denti [6] and Boserup [4]. The primary focus of most of such studies consists of analysing female labour force participation rates and iitructure by controlling for one or two background factors like age or family structure. Fong's study [9] of West Malaysian women seems to be one of the few studies that have concentrated on analysing in a detailed and exhaustive manner the social and economic correlates of female work participation.
