Occupational Segregation and Its Impact on Gender Wage Discrimination in China's Rural Industrial Sector
This paper examines gender wage discrimination in China's newly developed rural industrial sector. The different occupational distributions of men and women are shown to be partly due to discrimination in occupational assignment by the community authorities, but the impact on the gender wage differential of this form of discrimination is not as important as wage discrimination within each occupation. Moreover, it is found that relative to intraoccupational discrimination, interoccupational wage discrimination is more important than in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Possible explanations for these phenomena are provided. Copyright 1995 by Royal Economic Society.
