Sex Discrimination in Non-wage Compensation: Pension and Health Insurance Participation
In 1983, 81 percent of white male full-time workers participated in employer-supported health plans and 54 percent in employer-supported pension plans. White full-time females, in contrast, participated at the rates of 71 percent and 43 percent. This study measures the unexplained portion of these differentials using data from the 1983 Current Population Survey. This investigation reveals that about 30 percent of the difference between males and females in pensions and about 65 percent of the difference in health insurance is unexplained. Thus, the unexplained differentials in these benefits are similar in direction to the unexplained differentials found in wages.
