Integrated Roma Earnings: A Multivariate Analysis for the Discrimination Hypothesis in Greece
AbstractThis study is the first to apply econometric tools in the study of wage discrimination for the integrated Romani population (“Gypsies”). Analyzing 2007-08 data from a random sample, the Athens Area Study, drawn from 16 multiethnic municipalities, the author finds that male Roma workers earned 16.4% less than non-Roma workers with the same age, marital status, education, and occupational characteristics did. By using a random sample and multivariate analysis, this study constitutes a significant methodological advancement over previous studies of Romani discrimination and initiates efforts to compare earnings based on Romani background.
