dc.description.abstract This research utilizes data from the 2000 Displaced Worker Survey to analyze the role of individual-, structural- and gender-level factors in reemployment after displacement. The literature review samples literature from the human capital, dual economy, segmented labor market, and feminist models. Drawn from the previous literature, an alternative model has been formulated. The hypotheses from the alternative model include the effect of educational attainment, age, labor markets, minority status, and gender. Support for all of the hypotheses is observed from bivariate and multivariate analysis. Key findings from the individual-level indicate that greater educational attainment increase the likelihood of post-displacement employment. Age and receiving unemployment benefits decreases the likelihood of post-displacement employment. Key findings for the structural-level indicate increased likelihoods of post-displacement employment for respondents relocating for work and respondents displaced from positions with higher occupational prestige. Key findings for the gender-level indicate increased likelihoods of post-displacement employment for female respondents, minorities, married and unmarried respondents. Policy implications as a result of key findings are also suggested en
