Determinants of Female Labor Force Participation in the Agricultural Sector of Swaziland
AbstractThis study investigates the determinants of Female Labor Force Participation (FLFP) in the Swaziland agricultural sector. This study uses data from the Swaziland Integrated Labor Force Survey 2007/08 collected by the Central Statistics Office, Swaziland. The methodology used to analyze the data included the use of the probit and multinomial logit models. The findings of the study indicate that about 7% of females participate in the agricultural sector. Participation of females is determined by age, marital status, level of education, land ownership, employment status and credit accessibility. Based on these findings, measures to enhance the participation of women in agriculture are proposed.
