Abstract

Using data from the Social Change and Economic Life Initiative, an attempt is made to gauge the extent of gender differences in wages that are due to discrimination. Allowance is made for gender differences in occupational attainment. It is estimated that discrimination in the range of 11 to 24 per cent of female wages can be found.
