Utilizing linked vital statistics, administrative employer, and state welfare records, the analysis in this paper investigates the determinants of a woman's intermittent labor force decision at the time of a major life event: the birth of a child. The results indicate that both direct and opportunity labor market costs of exiting the workforce figure significantly into that decision. Further, the analysis reveals the importance of including information about the mother's pre-birth job when making inferences about the role various demographics play in the intermittent labor force decision. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand edition of an important, hard-to-find publication.
