Using longitudinal data from the National Longitudinal Study of Young Women's Labor Force Experience (NLSYW), this study explores the association between women's work/family status and perceived control, as well as the association between job quality and perceived control among employed women. Selection effects are then tested to determine if early perceived control is more strongly associated with current work/family status than is current perceived control. Findings suggest that current work/family status and current job quality are the strongest correlates of current perceived control and that the effects of early perceived control on current work/family status are minimal. These findings underscore the importance of family structure and women's employment in determining factors that are important to individual well-being.
