Using panel data from the NLS of Young Women, the labor force participation of 1,747 white married females is examined from the time of first marriage until the birth of first child. Multiple regression analyses indicate that the factors having significant effects on labor force participation during this period (in order of magnitude of effects) are: husband's attitudes toward wife's labor force participation, wife's most recent income, wife's education, wife's age, premarital labor force experience, husband's current income, and wife's mother's work experience. Implications and suggestions for further research are discussed. [Sociological Abstracts, Inc.]
