Abstract: There has not been any major change in gender occupational segregation in recent years in Australia. The analyses presented in this paper, using data from the 1996 Census of Population and Housing, suggest that this occupational segregation stems more from gender differences in entry-level occupations than from gender differences in occupational mobility. Whether this is good or bad is unclear, as imposing the male occupational distribution on females will disadvantage them in terms of earnings.
