The dynamics of changes in the female wage distribution in the USA: a quantile regression approach
AbstractThis paper examines the female wage structure focusing on changes at different points in the wage distribution. Newly developed quantile regression methods are used in analysing data from the March Current Population Survey. The results show that while the most significant changes for the less skilled women took place at the bottom of the wage distribution, for the more skilled groups changes occurred at both ends of the distribution. Consequently, wage inequality decreased for the high-school graduates and increased for the younger college graduates. Furthermore, the more highly skilled women experienced the steepest gain in wages regardless of their position in the distribution. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
