Abstract

The proportion of married women in employment in the United Kingdom grew rapidly during the 1970s, rising from around 50 to 60 percent. The paper investigates this change using a time series of cross sections from the Family Expenditure Survey. An attempt is made to assess how much of the change was due to trends in the observable characteristics of the population and what part was played by changes in behavioral and other factors reflected in the coefficients of the model. A technique of growth accounting is proposed and used to this purpose. Copyright 1990 by The London School of Economics and Political Science.
