    Abstract

    ODLAND J. and ELLIS M. (1998) Variations in the labour force experience of women across large metropolitan areas in the United States, Reg. Studies 32 , 333-347. Variations in women's labour force experience rates across the largest metropolitan areas of the US are analysed by decomposing the intermetropolitan variance of experience rates for 1989 into a series of components that include intermetropolitan variation in the demography of female populations and intermetropolitan variation in the labour force participation of women with similar demographic characteristics. Variation in experience rates for women with similar characteristics accounts for more of the overall variation than variations in demography. Much of the intermetropolitan variation is accounted for by the behaviour of a few demographic groups, including mothers of small children. ODLAND J. et ELLIS M. (1998) La variation des taux d'activite feminins a travers d'importantes zones metropolitaines aux Etats-Unis, Reg. Studies 32 , 333-347. La variation des taux d'activite feminins a travers les plus importantes zones metropolitaines aux Etats-Unis se voit analyser a partir d'une decomposition de la variance intermetropolitaine des taux d'activite de 1989, y compris la variation intermetropolitaine de la demographie de la population feminine et la variation intermetropolitaine des taux d'activite des femmes dont les caracteristiques demographiques sont similaires. La variation des taux d'activite des femmes dont les caracteristiques sont similaires explique plus de la variation globale que ne l'explique la variation demographique, et la variation intermetropolitaine s'explique largement par le comportement de quelques groupes sociaux, y compris les meres d'enfants jeunes. ODLAND J. und ELLIS M. (1998) Underschiede in Erfahrung im Erwerbsleben von Frauen in ausgedehnten Grossstadtgebieten in den USA, Reg. Studies 32 , 333-347. Die Analyse von Unterschieden in den Raten der Erfahrung im Berufsleben von Frauen in ausgedehnten Grossstadtgebieten in den USA wird durch Zerlegung grossstadtisher Unterschiedlichkeit der Erfahrensraten fur das Jahr 1989 in eine Serie von Bestandteilen erreicht, die intergrossstadtische Unterschiede der Demographie der weiblichen Bevolkerung und intergrossstadtische Unterschiede der Teilnahme am Berufsleben von Frauen ahnlicher demographischer Eigenschaften einschliesst. Gesamtunterschiede beruhen mehr auf Unterschieden in Erfahrungsraten fur Frauen mit vergleichbaren Erfahrungen als auf demographischen Unterschieden, und intergrossstadtische Unterschiede beruhen auf dem verhalten einiger weniger demographischer Gruppen, einschliesslich Muttern mit kleinen Kindern.
