Sex Discrimination and Occupational Segregation in the Australian Labour Market
This paper explores the implications of the difference between the occupational distribution for males and females in a joint model determining earnings and occupation. The male/female wage differential is evaluated for a number of broad occupational classifications. This is followed by an evaluation of the role and relative importance of interoccupational and intraoccupational effects as contributors to the overall male/female wage differential. The main conclusion following from the econometric results is that intraoccupational effects dominate. Thus, policies that attempt to address the gender wage differential by reallocation of labor across occupations are unlikely to solve the problem. Copyright 1993 by The Economic Society of Australia.
