Male-Female Wage-Gap Decomposition in Agriculture-Based Employment in the Philippines

Abstract

The study uses the 2006 to 2009 Labor Force Surveys (LFS) to estimate the wage structure and wage differentials between employed men and women in agriculture-based employment in the Philippines. Estimates reveal that average male wage workers in the agriculture sector receive remunerations that are approximately 13% to 18% higher than what the average female wage workers receive. Using the threefold Blinder-Oaxaca wage decomposition method, about 12% of the estimated gender wage gap is due to the endowment effect or the human capital effect, 74% is due to the coefficients effect and 14% can be attributed to the interaction effect.
