Do Young Women Trade Jobs for Marriage: A Skeptical View: A Response
Diane Macunovich ()
Department of Economics Working Papers from Department of Economics, Williams College
The author presents data drawn from the March Current Population Survey Public Use Tapes on trends in the labor force participation of young women to show that, because of an overlap between the proportion of women in school and the proportion counted as being in the labor force (young women "working their way through school"), when labor force participation rate is adjusted for school enrollment, even this series shows a "topping out" over the last several years.
