Abstract

Using a sample from the National Longitudinal Survey of Work Experience of Women, this study empirically examines the factors that determine wages for a sample of middle-aged displaced homemakers who reenter the labor force after displacement. Education, occupational training, health, size of the labor market, and length of search time are found significantly to affect reentry wages for this group.
