Education is the most significant individual factor associated with work experiences, while age and family status have a lesser effect. The findings of no differences between Appalachian and non-Appalachian women's work experiences support the suggestion that structural and economic conditions of regions are the primary causes of labor market characteristics, not sub-cultural differences among regions. Data for this study come from a statewide mail survey of nonmetro households in Kentucky.-from Authors
