Occupational Pattern, Wage Rates and Earning Disparities in India: A Decomposition Analysis
Inequalities in livelihood among socio-economic groups are caused by disparities in job availability, type and sector of employment and earnings there from, and transcend the boundaries of current generation through their impact on capability formation. This paper explores issues of occupational distribution, wage rates, and total earnings in the Indian labour market over the last decade across social classes, regions, gender, and job types. The relative roles played by discrimination during entry and wage setting, and that by endowment in explaining the occupational and earning disparities have been examined through Decomposition technique. The findings suggest increasing disparities in recent times caused by both Discrimination and Endowment gaps.
