Estimating Gender Wage Gaps: A Data Update
McDonald, Judith A.; Thornton, Robert J.
Journal of Economic Education, v47 n2 p140-141 2016
In the authors' 2011 "JEE" article, "Estimating Gender Wage Gaps," they described an interesting class project that allowed students to estimate the current gender earnings gap for recent college graduates using data from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Unfortunately, since 2012, NACE no longer reports starting salaries for college graduates broken down by gender. In this note, the authors describe several alternative data options that instructors can use for the class project using the simulation procedure that was described in the earlier article.
