The effects of long-distance migration on the labour force participation of married women are studied for the Netherlands, using data from the 1977 and 1995/96 labour force surveys. The results show that married women who migrated in the year before the interview to another Dutch province are less likely to participate in paid employment than other married women. For longer moves (over at least two province boundaries) the negative effect on the wife's employment is stronger than for shorter moves (over one province boundary) and in 1995/96 it is somewhat weaker than in 1977. The strength of the migration effect differs among different groups of married women. In 1995/96, women with a high educational level and women who live in the Randstad experienced fewer negative effects of migration, whereas for women with children at home and for women whose husbands hold prestigious jobs the negative effects of migration are stronger than for other women.
