Education and Women's Labour Market Outcomes in India: An Analysis Using NSS Household Data
G.G. Kingdom and
Economics Series Working Papers from University of Oxford, Department of Economics
In this paper we pose the question: to what extent is education responsible for the differential labour market outcomes of women and men in urban India. In particular, we investigate the extent to which education contributes to women's observed lower labour force participation and earnings than men, and whether any contribution of education to the gender wage differential is explained by men and women's differential educational endowments or by labour market discrimination.
