  • 2001-08 :: A Latent Class Application to the Measurement of Poverty
    by Pasi Moisio & 2001-09

    This paper investigates whether and in what sense the west German wage structure has been 'rigid' in the 1990s. To test the hypothesis that a rigid wage structure has been responsible for rising low-skilled unemployment, I propose a methodology which makes less restrictive identifying assumptions than some previous related work. I find that the relative stability of educational wage premia was jus...

  • 2001-07 :: Wage Rigidities in Western Germany? Microeconometric Evidence from the 1990s

  • 2001-06 :: Equilibrium Job Search and Gender Wage Differentials in the UK
    by Audra J. Bowlus & Louise Grogan & 2001-06

    The role of gender differences in labour market behaviour in determining the UK male-female wage differential is examined using the British Household Panel Study and the general equilibrium job search framework of Bowlus (1997). We find that search behaviour explains 30-35% of the gender wage differential. This is similar to US findings. Despite more generous maternity policies, females in the UK ...

  • 2001-05 :: Impact of Dual Careers on Average Family Size: Comparison of 11 Countries
    by Lynn Prince Cooke & 2001-06-20

    The dissolution of the sexual division of labour remains, in Hochschild's (1989) words, a 'stalled' revolution. While more and more married women participate in paid work, men have not equalized the division of labour by appreciably increasing the time they devote to unpaid domestic tasks. The state can assist in managing this double time burden on women by enabling families to externalize a porti...

  • 2001-04 :: SOR models and Ethnicity data in LIS and LES : country by country report
    by Paul Lambert & Roger Penn & 2001-04-02

    This research considers the idea that a single metric expressing distance between social groups may be an adequate tool for investigating the relationship between ethnic/nationality minority group membership and social stratification. A Stereotyped Ordered Regression (SOR) model is proposed as a methodology for deriving this metric 1, and this paper considers the role of SOR models for the variety...

  • 2001-03 :: Pension Portability and Labour Mobility in the United States. New Evidence from SIPP Data
    by Vincenzo Andrietti & Vincent Hildebrand & 2001-03

    We explore the role of employer provided pensions on job mobility choices using data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation. Defined benefit plans are found to have a significant negative effect on mobility. However, we find no significant evidence that the potential pension portability losses deter job mobility among workers covered by these plans. We also find that the portability p...

  • 2001-02 :: Gender Earnings Mobility: A Comparison of Relative Mobility in Germany and the UK
    by Michael Brookes & 2001-03

    At the current moment there are lots of examples within the literature of cross-sectional estimates of gender wage differentials and discriminiation, however attempts to explain the dynamic processes which lead to the wage differences are rare. Furthermore studies which seek to analyse these processes on a cross-country basis are even rarer. The purpose of this paper is to establish the role that ...

  • 2001-01 :: Wealth Accumulation of US Households: What do we learn from the SIPP data?
    by Vincent Hildebrand & 2001-04

    In this paper, I estimate, for US households, age-wealth profiles which allow for cohort effects. I use these to reexamine one of the central empirical propositions simple life-cycle models: dissaving after retirement. The analysis employs a data set which has not been previously examined in this way: the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). The main regression results suggest that e...
