Public Sector Wage Gaps In Spanish Regions
AbstractUsing data from the European Community Household Panel for the period 1995-2001, in this paper we show that there are sizeable public sector wage differences among regions that are mostly due to differences in returns, and to a lesser extent to differences in characteristics and to selection effects. Regional differences in public sector wage gaps vary across gender, educational levels and occupations. Also, they display a positive correlation with regional unemployment and a negative one with regional labour productivity.
