No 905, Working Papers from Universidade de Vigo, Departamento de Economía Aplicada

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to study segregation in the Spanish labor market for both male and female workers, paying special attention to industrial segregation. As opposed to other studies, this article quantifies the segregation of each demographic group separately, rather than measuring overall segregation. For this purpose, it uses additively decomposable indices, together with local segregation curves, recently proposed in the literature, which allows us to go further in the empirical analysis.
