The data for this study come from a new sample drawn from the Public Use Microdata Sample of the 1980 census (PUMS-D), which includes local labor-market area identifiers. Gender differences in earnings and work stability are examined for full-time workers from 17 labor-market areas in Kentucky and counties in contiguous states. Models include individual and human capital variables and structural variables measured for individuals and labor-market areas. Results specify how gender interacts with other influences to shape work experiences in different types of labor markets, thus confirming the importance of constructing multilevel models that include labor-market characteristics. -from Authors
