Author: Whan, Mary; Rathge, Richard; Mammen, Shella
Description: In this article, we investigate the earned income contribution of North Dakota wives' to their family's total Income. We focus on paid labor but recognize that this Is only one aspect of wives' economic input which ranges from unpaid housework to child care. Our attention centers on the past decade, a period of many dramatic changes in married women's labor force activity. Thus, we compare wives of intact families for 1970 and 1980. In addition, we analyze the effect of education, occupation, income, and stage in the life cycle on the wives' financial contribution to their family.
