Abstract

This study uses comparative panel data from the U.S. Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) and the German Socioeconomic Panel (SOEP) to examine the relationship between labour-force integration and entry into marriage. It explores the correlation between employment status and the financial aspect of labour force integration and between enrolment status and the occupational role aspect. A general interpretation of the findings is accompanied by specific accounts of cross-national differences in the United States and in the Federal Republic of Germany.
