Occupational Segregation Measures: A Role for Status

Coral del Rio Otero () and Olga Alonso-Villar

No 1103, Working Papers from Universidade de Vigo, Departamento de Economía Aplicada

Abstract: This paper defines local segregation measures which are sensible to status differences among organizational units. So far as we know, this is the first time that status-sensitive segregation measures are offered in a multigroup context by invoking a cardinal measure of status. These measures allow aggregating employment gaps of a target group penalizing its concentration in low-status occupations. They are intended to complement, rather than substitute, previous local segregation measures. The usefulness of these tools is illustrated in the case of occupational segregation by race and ethnicity in the U.S.
