This study uses a sample drawn from the 1880 Manuscript Census of Colorado to investigate the influence of individual and regional characteristics on the labor force participation rates of both single and married women in areas with different production characteristics. Results show that the determinants of labor force participation differ considerably for single and married women, but they also show strong consistency within each group. Labor force participation rates are also influenced by general economic and social conditions.
