Previous empirical work on gender inequality in labor market outcomes raises the question of what factors cause tenure differences between men and women and suggests several reasons: social norms, number of children, educational differences, occupations differences etc. Using the data from the CPS Job Tenure Supplement, I find that over the 1983-2008 period, the tenure gap between men and women has declined. My findings suggest that the number of children, age, industry of work, and full-time employment remain important determinants of the gender differences in tenure gap for all races.
