Racial Differences in Access to High-Paying Jobs and the Wage Gap between Black and White Women.
Anderson, Deborah; Shapiro, David
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v49 n2 p273-86 Jan 1996
Data from black and white women ages 34-44 (1968-88) showed that differences in characteristics did not explain occupational segregation by race nor the racial wage gap. During the 1980s, the gap was influenced by widening differences in access to occupations and an increase in returns to education. (SK)
