Focusing on the differentials associated with migrants’ region of origin, this paper examines the effects of family structure on women’s work. This analysis aims to provide empirical evidence to shed further light on the existing knowledge and to explore the more appropriate theoretical model regarding the association between family structure characteristics and immigrant women’s work outside the home in the multicultural and multiethnic context. The multivariate results of this analysis support the key fact that the substantial effects of family structure characteristics on women’s work outside the home tend to persist beyond the influence of migration status and ethnic diversity.
