Gender Wage Differentials in the Czech Republic
AbstractThe article summarizes the main points discussed at the seminar ?Women vs. Men in the Czech Labour Market? held by the Czech Economic Association in January 2000. The main speaker, Dr. Štìpán Jurajda (CERGE UK, Princeton University), presented his current working paper, which analyses gender wage differentials in the Czech Republic using detailed microeconomic data. According to the key finding of Jurajda?s paper, a larger part?roughly two-thirds?of the total differential between the wages of men and women in the Czech Republic can be attributed to ?pure? wage discrimination. This conclusion differs from the conclusions of similar studies undertaken in other countries, which suggested that segregation is more important in explaining gender wage disparity. Dr. Jurajda?s model, however, does not control for the influence of motherhood, as the data remain scarce.
