Abstract

This paper hypothesizes that socioeconomic factors influence the decisions of married women to participate in the labor market, whether part time or full time. Because of the importance of the growing number of part-time workers among married women in Japan, the authors dealt separately with part-time and full-time workers in urban area. Their findings suggest that it is inappropriate to combine part-time and full-time workers as though they constituted a homogeneous group since there are clear-cut behavioral differences in labor-force participation among married women. Thus, special attention to the specific characteristics of the labor market of married women in Japan is important.
