dc.description.abstractAntecol (2000) finds that culture plays a role in explaining inter-ethnicvariation in the gender gap in labor force participation rates (LFPR). However, Antecol(2000) was unable to determine what the components of culture, such as differences inpreferences regarding family structure and women's role in market versus home work,actually are and how to quantify these components in an empirically meaningful manner.Using data from the 1994 International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), this paperproxies culture using a set of questions on male attitudes toward family and sex roles. Ifind that women are more likely to work if men in their country view female LFP in afavorable light.en_US
