Women as a half of the active population, play an important and influential role in the Iranian economy. In recent decades, due to economic conditions, Employment for most of the women, notably for educated ones, has become an economic demand. Since women’s employment is a function of economic, social and population factors, focusing on one of these factors can’t reflect the reality of this subject.
The purpose of this paper is to Study socio-economic factors that affect the women employment in Iran. A Logit Model and Family budget (2011) have been used.
The results of this model for women, who reside in rural and urban areas , demonstrates that some factors such as the Number of employed persons in the household, Marital status, place of residence, as well as being the head of the household have a significant positive impact on women’s employment. Age as one of the important factors has a positive but non-linear effect on employment, while higher education has an adverse effect on women’s employment.
