Abstract

This study analyzes the existence of discrimination as one of the factors of the wage difference for women inserted in typically female occupations in the state of Goiás. For this purpose, PNAD data from the years 2011 to 2014 are used for the region, estimating wage equations and applying an Oaxaca decomposition (1973) to obtain the determinants of the wage differential according to the worker’s gender. The results show that women in the state of Goiás are concentrated in occupations of lower level of income and lower productivity. Even in occupations with high participation of women, denominated as typically female occupations, there is an important differential component related to discrimination according to gender. This phenomenon should be considered in the design of public policy for insertion of women into the local labor market.
