Geographical Patterns of Labor Force Participation Rates in Oklahoma Counties

Umoh, Nicholas Sampson
Abstract

The main theme of this study concerns the variations of labor force participation rates in Oklahoma counties. The study has three main objectives. First, it tries to develop a set of geographical models to investigate the extent that personal, family factors and labor market conditions affect labor force participation rates in Oklahoma counties. Second, the effect of work-residence separation on the labor force participation is examined. Finally, for more insights into geographic variability of labor force participation rates, analysis, mapping and interpretation of residuals from regression are undertaken.
