This thesis examines the effects of personal, human capital and job related characteristics on the quit decision of managerial or professional level women. In addition, perceptual or equity factors, such as crowding within grade level and functional area, relative time to promotion and pay compared to others in the firm, were modeled. The micro-data are from the personnel files of a large manufacturing firm. Three types of analysis were conducted. The first was a logit analysis of a cross-sectional sample of the managerial/professional women in this firm. The second was a logit analysis of a pooled cohort sample of these women, during their second full year after hire. The third examination of the data used proportional hazard analysis, compensating for the selection bias, due to censored data, inherent in quit studies. The relative advantages and disadvantages of the three techniques are discussed. Empirical results of the proportional hazards model show that such job related factors as recent promotion, salary, grade level and favorable performance ratings significantly reduce quits, with promotion having the strongest effect. Personal factors such as marriage and children also reduce the managerial/professional woman's propensity to quit.
