A Distributional Approach for Measuring Wage Discrimination and Occupational Discrimination Separately

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

Studies adopting the distributional approach in analysing gender discrimination in the labour market (Jenkins, 1994; Del Rìo et al., 2010) pay little attention to the issue of the separate measuring of wage discrimination and occupational discrimination. Instead, our paper uses the Foster-Greer-Thorbecke indices for measuring wage discrimination and occupational discrimination separately. Similar to the technique employed in the Brown-Moon-Zoloth decomposition (1980), we have thus used a multinomial model to estimate the theoretical distribution of women in occupation, in the absence of occupational discrimination.
