Abstract: In order to analyze the earnings differential between women and men DlEKMANN and ENGELHARDT (1995) estimate income functions using hours worked as an exogenous explanatory variable. Their model is misspecified because hours of work should in fact be treated as an endogenous variable. In this comment we use a three-step estimation procedure that takes account of both self selection and the endogeneity of hours of work. Our estimations indicate that the results of DIEKMANN and ENGELHARDT are severely biased.
