Female-Male Earnings Differentials and Occupational Structure.
Terrell, Katherine
International Labour Review, v131 n4-5 p387-404 1992
A review of econometric literature on female-male wage differences and asymmetrical distribution in occupations shows that differences in returns to human capital (i.e., discrimination) explains far more of the wage gap than differences in education and experience. Crowding of women into few occupations depresses wages. (SK)
