Binnur Balkan () and Seyit Cilasun ()

No 1373, Working Papers from Economic Research Forum

Abstract: In this study, we conduct a multiple identity correspondence audit study that we ran in a Muslim majority, developing country. To do that, we bring ethnicity and religiosity into a gender correspondence audit. We also introduce two new measure of discrimination to literature, and show that there is no gender discrimination at the intermediate steps of the hiring process. We find positive discrimination in favor of females at the callback stage but only if they belong to the neutral group. When we interact ethnicity and religiosity with gender, we see that favorable treatment of females disappear for Kurdish and religious females. Hence, we show that it is important to keep multiple identities in mind when conducting correspondence audit studies.Length: 43
