Female Participation in the Labour Force of Selected Latin American Countries
AbstractData from 17 Latin American countries concerning female participation in the labour force and selected social, economic and demographic characteristics were examined using the path analysis models. Of the 3 most important independent variables (i. e. those representing female education, fertility and urbanization) the most significant predictor was the proportion of 15-19-year olds receiving secondary education. this accounted for more than two-thirds of the variation in levels of female participation in the labour force.
