Project Number: 50515 URL contains: Final Report: No. 155: Public housing, women and employment: challenges and strategies Research and Policy Bulletin: Issue 143: How does living in public housing affect women's employment? PDF of final report INTO AND OUT OF WORK

This is the Final Report of a research project that seeks to add to the body of research evidence by investigating why, and how, some female public housing tenants are able to enter or re-enter paid work and whether they are able to realise the projected benefits. This work suggests that rates of employment of women living in public housing are particularly low in the context of increases in female participation rates over the last two decades. It appears that women face particular obstacles in moving into paid work, not all of which are observable from secondary data, but that a quarter of such women work despite these obstacles.
