Exploiting information from path dependency in Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition procedures
AbstractThis article addressed the issue of path dependency in Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition procedures. It shows that obtaining different results from decompositions computed on different base models and population structures should not be considered as a limitation but as valuable information about the underlying discrimination processes. Illustration is provided for the evaluation of racial discrimination in health in South Africa for 1999.
