Dissecting Wage Dispersion

San Cannon () and Jose Mustre-del-Rio ()

Economic Review, 2017, issue Q III, 35-52

Abstract: Wages are substantially dispersed across workers, jobs, and employers in the U.S. economy. Although some of that dispersion is due to demographic factors, the authors found that after controlling for those differences, both ?who you are? (the permanent component of wage dispersion) and ?where you work? (the match-specific component of wagedispersion) contribute to the range of wages paid.
