Abstract

Using labor survey data for the year 1998, this paper attempts to estimate a gender-based earning model that is a function of age, experience, and education levels. According to the estimated model, keeping education at a fixed level, the wages of production (blue-collar) workers are a nonlinear function of age and experience. On the average, over a lifetime, female workers earn 78 to 81% of the wages of their male counterparts. The annual rate of return on three years of high school education is 4.15% for males and 2.45% for females.
