Male-Female Wage Differentials in Urban Labor Markets
CULTURE, TRADITION, AND OVERT DISCRIMINATION tend to make restrictive the terms by which women may participate in the labor force. These influences combine to generate an unfavorable occupational
Another Look at Tests of Equality between Sets of Coefficients in Two Linear Regressions
Undoubtedly, anyone with at least an intro ductory course in econometrics has been exposed to the "Chow" test. As popularized by Johnston [4, pp. 136-138], the "Chow" test is a statistical means for
Wage Decompositions with Selectivity-Corrected Wage Equations: A Methodological Note
This paper examines the implications of the standard Heckman (Heckit) correction for selectivity bias in wage and earnings functions that are subsequently used in wage decompositions. Even when
New Market Power Models and Sex Differences in Pay
In the context of certain models, it is possible to infer the elasticity of labor supply to the firm from the elasticity of the quit rate with respect to the wage. We use this strategy to estimate
Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering. A Life Sequence Analysis.
A Life Sequence Analysis At the outset we should emphasize that this article is organized in a somewhat atypical fashion; that is, we have merged the existing literature on this topic with our own

The standard wage decomposition methodology produces arbitrary results when attempting to estimate the separate contributions of sets of dummy variables to the unexplained portion of the wage
Estimating Labour Market Discrimination with Selectivity Corrected Wage Equations: Methodological Considerations and an Illustration from Israel
This paper presents a modified and improved methodology for the decomposition of wage differentials between two groups of workers into an endowment component and a discrimination component. The
We analyze data from first-price auction experiments with independent private values for consistency with equilibrium bidding models. Three models are considered: the log-concave model (Cox, Smith,
