Rural Wages and Returns to Education: Differences between Whites, Blacks, and American Indians.
Kimmel, Jean
Economics of Education Review, v16 n1 p81-96 Feb 1997
Examines racial and gender wage differences for rural workers, using wage equations derived from G.S. Becker's human capital model. With the rural focus, American Indian males and black females experience the weakest wage returns to education within their respective genders. Discrimination seems more prevalent in the rural female labor market, although its actual effect on wages is much smaller. (27 references) (MLH)
