Employment Stability Among Workers: A Case Study From Nine Nonmetro Kentucky Counties, 1979

Employment was disrupted for some workers in a nine-county nonmetro area in south-central Kentucky during a period of rapid employment growth. Married women's employment stability was less than that of married men. Household responsibilities caused disruptions in married women's employment to a greater extent than in married men's. Married workers experienced more employment stability than did single workers. Workers changing jobs had less stable employment than those holding only one job from January 1, 1974, to December 31, 1979. Disruptions in employment stability seem to be a natural process within any dynamic economy.
