The discontinuities that characterize women's work histories are also a factor in women's marital histories.
Family obligations and childbearing contribute to women's unique employment histories, which include intermittent labor force participation and mobility between employers.
While research has increasingly focussed on the effect of labor force participation on women's health, little attention has been given to the erect of the consistency or the stability of labor force participation on health.
The purpose of this paper is to examine 15 years of employment histories and marital status changes among a cohort of women and to determine the cumulative effect of these histories on subsequent morbidity and self-reported health.
