No 761, Department of Economics - Working Papers Series from The University of Melbourne

Abstract: Wage functions provide much useful descriptive information about those characteristics of individuals which are associated with relatively high or low wage rates. In any cross-sectional survey there are many individuals who are not working at the time the survey is carried out. Such people may be sick or temporarily unemployed, in which case a current wage rate is not available, or they may not be participating in the labour market, in which case there may not even be a previous wage to record. The estimation procedure obviously needs to allow for this sample selection aspect.
