THE WORKTRIPS OF RURAL NON-METROPOLITAN WOMEN IN IOWA

This paper presents a model of work commute length for female residents of rural nonmetropolitan areas in Iowa. The authors find that some factors important in constraining the length of urban women's commute, such as linking commuting trips with household-related trips, are less relevant in a rural setting. The authors also find that women working in non-feminized occupations, women receiving employer-provided health benefits, and women with better transportation resources, tend to have longer commutes.
