Interindustry Wage Differentials and the Gender Wage Gap.
Fields, Judith; Wolff, Edward N.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v49 n1 p105-20 Oct 1995
Wages of female workers differ significantly by industry. The average woman earns about 65% as much as the average man; 12%-22% of the gap is explained by differences in patterns of interindustry wage differentials and 15%-19% by differences in gender distribution of workers. Combined industry effects explain about one-third of the gender wage gap. (SK)
