Working Papers from Aarhus School of Business - Department of Economics
This paper examines the gender earnings gap at the executive level on a unique data set of Danish executives in the period 1992-1995. Ordinary wage equations show that the wage gap disappears when controlling for "Who you are", "Where you work" and "What you do". Additionally, decomposition into inter- and intra-occupational differences shows that two thirds of the wage gap are due to differences between occupations.
