Cross-National Variation in the Labour Market Participation of Married Women in Australia, Canada and the United States of America
This study examines cross-national variation in the labour force participation of married women in Australia, Canada and the USA. Initially, a basic model of labour force participation is presented using data from the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS). In addition two applications of the estimates follow: a simulation and a decomposition of the differential. The results of these applications confirm that variation in the probability of participation for married women can be explained by both country-specific characteristics and the differences in the responses to those characteristics.
