The Evolution of the Female Labour Force Participation Rate in Australia, 1984-1999
This paper contributes a cohort analysis of the labour force participation rate of Australian women over the 1984 to 1999 period with the aim of identifying the potential influence of a number of factors. Specifically, the analysis tracks the participation behaviour of representative groups (or cohorts) of Australian women over the life course. A fixed effects panel data regression model is utilized to ‘decompose’ the participation rate of each cohort and so identify how the participation rate observed in each year between 1984 and 1999 was affected by: i) General macroeconomic conditions prevailing in Australia at the time; ii) The age of the women in the cohort; and iii) The age-specific participation characteristics of the cohort, as compared to either younger and/or older cohorts. These effects on observed participation rates are referred to, respectively, as the ‘macro-economic effect’, the ‘age effect’, and the ‘cohort effect’.
