Utilizing data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of 1971-1975 (NHANES I), comparisons wer made of general well-being scores and utilization of professional services between employed and non-employed women. Employed women tend to have a higher sense of well-being and utilize fewer professional services to cope with personal and mental health problems than their non-employed counterparts. This tendency is more pronounced among non-married and less-educated women, with an indication of a counter-tendency among college-educated non-White women.
