Community characteristics, female employment and occupational segregation: small towns in a rural state ( Nebraska).

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Examines the tie between community characteristics, female labor force participation and sex-linked occupational segregation in 48 Nebraska towns. The analysis reveals that participation is affected by characteristics of the community. It is shown that female labor force participation tends to increase in towns located farther from urban centers and in communities characterized by manufacturing job opportunities. Participation, however, is not found to be related to community size.-from Author
