Age-earnings profiles of different generations

In this paper we compare age-earnings profiles between generations. Our empirical estimates are based on the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey of HSE (RLMS-HSE), 1994–2015. Using intrinsic estimator, we overcome age-period-cohort problem inherent in Mincer-type earnings functions. Comparison presented in the work revealed that some male generations’ income is less than that of the young cohorts and the opposite effect for some generations of women.
