Wife's employment and worker relocation behavior
Journal of Socio-Economics
A survey of workers involved in a recent job relocation provided data which permitted an analysis of the effect of wife's labor force attachment on family location choice. Studies have shown that family migration may be inhibited by a wife's employment and by the strength of her labor force attachment. Researchers have contended that such influences may be absent in cases of employee transfers and job relocations. In this case study, migration was deterred by wife's labor force attachment and was also affected by a worker's eligibility for a company buyout, tenure with the company, community attachment and family size. © 1993.
