Are There Differential Returns to Schooling by Gender? The Case of Indonesian Labour Markets

Abstract: Women are thought to be disadvantaged in developing countries. One of the major respects in which they are conjectured to be disadvantaged is that labor-market rewards to their schooling are less than those for males. This study investigates whether there are gender differentials in Indonesian wage and earnings relations. The results indicate that, although the returns to work experience are greater for males than for females, the marginal rates of return to schooling beyond the primary level are significantly greater for females.
