Einkommensungleichheit zwischen Frauen und Männern. Eine ökonometrische Analyse der Schweizer Arbeitskräfteerhebung
AbstractThis article analyzes income differences between women and men in Switzerland. Using data from the Swiss Labour Force Survey of 1991, income functions are estimated on the basis of human capital theory. The sample selection bias is taken into account by the Heckman correction. It is asked for the extent to which the income differences are caused by differences in human capital and segregation of branches. It is also asked for the effects various methods of adjusting the correction variable of the sample selection bias in the decomposition of the income gap affect the estimation of discrimination. Statistical analysis shows that a considerable degree of discrimination remains even if the incomegap is corrected by human capital variables, segregation of branches, and labor force participation. However, the estimation of discrimination depends on the method that is used to decompose the income gap.
