Abstract

Reported here are the estimates from two logit models of married women's labour force employment: a pooled unconditional logit that does not control for fixed effects and a conditional logit model incorporating fixed effects. Both sets of results indicate the presence of occupational segregation between part-time and full-time employment since the amount of part-time experience a woman has obtained increases the probability of part-time employment. These results are in agreement with those reported in previous studies that the presence of preschool children differentially encourages part-time employment. © 1993 Chapman & Hall Ltd.
