Blurb/Shorttext:
This book examines Malaysian women employment patterns in the service sector and the influence of employment on migration. It focuses on the female labor force in the service sector, the development of the service sector worldwide, theories of female migration, and the application of an individual-level of the Logit model. The data are accessed from the second-wave of the Malaysian Family Life Survey, Before estimating the relationship between the explanatory variables and the decision to migrate, steps are taken to avoid sample selection bias by normalizing the non-migrants’ age conditional on the migrants’ last-move age. The analysis from the Logit model supports the universal view that demographic and cultural variables affect the decision to migrate. This book is especially useful to academics who are specializing in labor economics and gender studies, or anyone who may be interested in analyzing female migration and employment patterns in the service sector.
