Educational Attainment and the Gender Wage Gap: Evidence from the 1986 and 1991 Canadian Censuses.
Christie, Pamela; Shannon, Michael
Economics of Education Review, v20 n2 p165-80 Apr 2001
Uses Canadian census data to examine effects of gender differences in educational attainment on the gender earnings gap for full-time, full-year Canadian workers. These educational attainment differences account for virtually none of the gender earnings gap in 1985 and 1990. Gender differences in field of study matter somewhat more. (Contains 17 references.)
