Title
  • The Gender Pay Gap by Occupation: A Test of the Crowding Hypothesis
Author
  • Eric J. Solberg
Physical Description
  • article
Notes
  • Identified, structural wage equations for seven occupations are estimated to test the crowding hypothesis-that the gender pay gap is due to females being crowded into low-paying occupations-using data drawn from the 1996 wave of the National Longitudinal Study of Youth (NLSY79). Occupational preferences are used to estimate a logit probability model of occupational assignment to create instruments to control for self-selection. Wage equations are estimated for all workers and for full-time, year-round workers. Identical specifications are estimated for private-sector workers. The results are not consistent with a crowding explanation as the sole source of the gender pay gap unless crowding occurs at less aggregated levels of occupations than those used for this study.
