The Influence of the Status and Sex Composition of Occupations on the Male-Female Earnings Gap
Gunderson, Morley
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, 31, 2, 217-26, Jan 78
Reports a study of alternative theories of sex discrimination which imply ambiguous predictions about the relation between the male/female earnings ratio and the status and sex composition of the occupation. Notes that about one-half of the earnings gap between the sexes can be attributed to direct discrimination in the labor market, with occupational segregation being equally important to wage discrimination.
