A Structural Decomposition of Black-White Earnings Differentials.
Kaufman, Robert L.
American Journal of Sociology, v89 n3 p585-611 Nov 1983
Two factors which create differences in Black-White earnings are: (1) differentials between Blacks and Whites within divisions of the labor market; and (2) differences between industries and occupations in earnings, combined with the differential distribution of Blacks and Whites across labor market divisions. The labor market structure is crucial to understanding Black-White differences. (Author/IS)
