Gender-Earnings Differentials Using Quantile Regressions

Author Info

  • CHRIS SAKELLARIOU

Abstract

I employ quantile regressions to analyze the size, components, and nature of the gender-earnings differentials over the entire conditional distribution of earnings, using data from Singapore. This approach allows more focused conclusions about the nature of gender-earnings differentials. Incorporating the quantile regression approach to the Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition allows the localization of gender discrimination to particular quantiles of the earnings distribution and permits more targeted policy intervention.
