The publication concludes that one has to think about either varieties of types at the same time in a unified framework to figure out the relative advantages of every.

Others are skeptical that this coefficient measures discrimination, more on this later. By now hundreds of studies adopt this type approach to measure the gender wage gap. Rather than examine each study one-by-one Weichselbaumer and Winter-Ebmer (2003) perform a meta-analysis of the “unexplained” gender wage gap across 238 separate studies.
Similarly (y0 − 1)/0 = ln y which can be derived by applying L’Hospital’s rule. One can make a confidence band around the estimated point value of τ : Pr(ln Lmax τµ − 12 χ2 df, α ≤ Lmax τi ) = 1 − α. The data from the survey indicate that the Mincer loge -linear specification fits the data best, though it is not perfect. Murphy and Welch (1990) also experiment with functional forms using cubic and quartic specifications. Hungerford and Solon (1987, p. ” Jaeger and Page (1996) utilize information on actual diplomas received to confirm more specifically these sheepskin effects.
For this reason, Griliches and Hausman (1986) suggest methods to transform the data in a way that sometimes can identify the errors without the need for external instruments. Alternatively, Polachek and McCutcheon (1983) and Polachek et al. (1987) use data which can be cross-checked to get around errorsof-measurement. On the other hand, Bound and Krueger (1991) show that longitudinal data may be more reliable than one might suspect if measurement errors are serially correlated across years. 4 Unobserved Heterogeneity 49 Models adjusting for unmeasured heterogeneity usually assume that all individual-specific differences affect only the intercept.
