Components of city-size wage differentials, 1973-1988
An exploration of why workers in large cities are more highly paid than their rural counterparts. The authors decompose city-size wage differentials into the portion due to worker traits and the portion due to intercity differences in wage structures and find that differences in worker-attribute prices account for most of the disparity.
