''Individual and institutional determinants of the male female wage gap among U.S. economics faculty''
( 2011, Vol. 31 No.1 )
This paper provides new evidence on the male female wage gap in academia. Using unique data from the economics discipline, we estimate a human-capital based model to explore the nature of wage differentials among male and female economics professors. Results indicate the salary gap varies across systematically across individual and institutional characteristics.
