Human Capital, Socioeconomic, and Labor Market Effects on the Wage Differential: A Case for Using Age Cohorts.
Jones, Joyce E.; Peck, Cynthia J.
Home Economics Research Journal, v22 n1 p3-38 Sep 1993
Using a model with human capital, socioeconomic, and labor market variables, a study found men's wages exceeded women's for all age cohorts. Investment in human capital and work history patterns influence wages, but do not explain the differential. A large percentage of the difference is explained by such labor market factors as occupational segregation, union coverage, and public sector employment. (SK)
