Gender Wage Gap in Poland – Can It Be Explained by Differences in Observable Characteristics?

Karolina Goraus () and Joanna Tyrowicz ()

No 2014-11, Working Papers from Faculty of Economic Sciences, University of Warsaw

Abstract: The raw gender wage gap over the period 1995-2012 amounts to app. 9% of hourly wage and is fairly stable. However, the raw gap does not account for differences in endowments between genders. In fact, the adjusted wage gap amounts to as much as 20% on average over the analyzed period and shows some cyclical properties. The estimates of adjusted gender wage gap do not seem to exhibit any long-term trends, which suggest that in general neither demographic changes nor the progressing transition underlie the phenomenon of unequal pay for the same work among men and women.
