The Effect of Homeownership on Single Women's Career Outcomes in the United States
This paper analyzes the effect of being a homeowner on single women's career outcomes as measured by the percentage change in their wage income. Using a selected sample from the 2001 and 2007 Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) data, the study finds a significantly negative relationship between homeownership and unmarried women's career advancement over a period of six years. The results fail to provide a conclusive explanation for why this is the case. Nevertheless, they suggest that more caution should be taken when policymakers as well as the public approach the issue of female homeownership.
