Workforce participation patterns in middle age women with breast cancer.


Using data from the 1946-51 cohort of ALSWH, this study will define patterns of workforce participation amongst Australian women aged 55 and over who reported having breast cancer on any survey and identify the predictors of workforce participation in this group of women. The analysis will show whether women in this age group are likely to continue in full time or paid time work paid work during or after their diagnosis, as well as how these patterns of workforce participation relate to socio-demographic factors, social circumstances, particular occupations or other productive activities outside of paid employment and health conditions.
