The Danish Gender Wage Gap in the 1980s: A Panel Data Study
AbstractIn Denmark, the equal pay act was put into force in 1976 but the relative pay of female workers is still considerably below the level of male workers in most occupational and educational groups and the decline of the aggregate gender wage gap seems to have stagnated since the late 1970s. In this study, different explanations of this evidence are investigated empirically based on the estimation of a human capital model on a panel sample of Danish wage earners observed during the period 1979-90.
