FACTORS AFFECTING FEMALE EMPLOYMENT IN MALE-DOMINATED OCCUPATIONS: EVIDENCE FROM THE 1990 AND 2000 CENSUS DATA

By MOHAMMAD ASHRAF

Abstract

"This article investigates the effects of age, marital status, number of children, and education on the probability of female presence in traditionally male-dominated occupations using the PUMS 1990 and PUMS 2000 data. The results indicate that being married with husband present decreases the probability of female presence in traditionally male-dominated occupations, whereas college education has changed from having a positive effect in the 1990 data to a negative effect in the 2000 data. The analysis also finds that there are significant regional variations with regard to the effects of these factors". ("JEL" J71, J31) Copyright No Claim to Original U.S. Government Works.
