Segregation of female and male workers in Spain: occupations and industries
AbstractThis paper studies female and male segregation in the Spanish labor market paying special attention to differences among industries. For this purpose, it studies segregation when jointly considering differences in 66 occupations and 4 large sectors (agriculture-fishing, construction, industry, and services), and analyzes the evolution of segregation from 1994 to 2009. In addition, it quantifies the occupational segregation within each large sector. In order to delve deeper in the analysis, differences between public and private services in terms of occupational segregation are also offered. In doing so, this paper uses additively decomposable indices, together with local segregation curves, recently proposed in the literature, which allows us to go further in the empirical analysis.
