Male-Female Salary Differentials in British Universities
The average salary differential between male and female academics in Britain in 1992 exceeded 15 percent. Using individual data covering all full-time academic staff in the old universities for the years 1975, 1985, and 1992, the authors find that a significant part of the differentials is explained by the fact that women are underrepresented in senior ranks. However, even after controlling for rank, age, tenure, and faculty, a gender effect in the remuneration of British academics remains. Moreover, neither the average salarygap nor that part attributable to an independent gender effect have fallen since 1975. Copyright 1997 by Royal Economic Society.
