Summary
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of domestic violence on women's labor force participation. The hypothesis was that women who had experienced domestic violence would have lower rates of labor force participation than women with no history of domestic violence. The University of Illinois Survey Research Laboratory conducted door-to-door interviews with women in the Humboldt Park, Montclare, and Belmont-Cragin community areas of Chicago. Data collection for Part 1, Humboldt Park Data, ran from September 16, 1994, through April 9, 1995. Interviews were completed with 824 adult women residing in the Humboldt Park neighborhood. Data collection for Part 2, Montclare and Belmont-Cragin Data, ran from April 10, 1995, through October 15, 1995. Interviews were completed with 149 adult women residing in the Montclare and Belmont-Cragin community areas. Demographic information was collected on respondent's race, marital status, income, and education, employment histories of the respondent, respondent's husband or boyfriend, and parents, and citizenship. Other variables include economic and social problems of the respondent's neighborhood, respondent's relationships with men, experiences as a victim of physical and sexual abuse by a husband or boyfriend, if the respondent had physical and mental problems during the past 12 months, if the respondent smoked or used alcohol or drugs, the number of days domestic problems prevented the respondent from working or going to school, whether respondent was emotionally, physically, or sexually abused as a child or teenager, in what ways the respondent's past experiences had affected her education and employment, respondent's current work experience and earnings, and whether the respondent received any type of public assistance
