El objetivo de este artículo es estimar la contribución de los distintos tipos de segregación de género en la diferencia salarial en la hostelería. Se emplean datos emparejados trabajador-establecimiento. La base de datos incluye información de 181 hoteles y 121 restaurantes de Andalucía. Estas repercusiones se obtienen suponiendo rendimientos iguales de las variables observables para hombres y mujeres y rendimientos distintos para cada colectivo. Entre los principales resultados cabe resaltar los siguientes. La segregación industrial, vertical y de establecimiento aumentan la diferencia salarial. La segregación horizontal y de categoría contribuyen a disminuirla. Estas estimaciones son robustas a la especificación empírica considerada. The aim of this article is to estimate the contribution of different types of gender segregation on the wage gap in the hospitality sector. Matched employee-employer data is used. The data source includes information on 181 hotels and 121 restaurants in Andalusia. These contributions are obtained assuming both equal returns of the observable variables for men and women and different returns. The main results are the following ones. Industrial, vertical and establishment segregation increase wage differential. Horizontal and category segregation diminish it. These estimations are robust to the empirical specification.
