Self-Employment and Wage Earning in Hungary
This paper examines the earnings determinants of the self-employed and wage earners in Hungary in the mid-1990s, taking into account two forms of selection: selection into working or non-working for every individual in its sample and selection into self-employment or wage-earning jobs for workers only. Previous studies use switching regression to examine the returns to individual characteristics, taking into account only selection into self-employment or wage-earning jobs. The authors find that the estimated returns to individual characteristics when accounting for both forms of selection, differ from estimates correcting for only selection into self-employment or wage-earning jobs. They also find that the earnings determinants of the two sectors are not significantly different from each other. Copyright Blackwell Publishing Ltd 2005.
