dc.description.abstractThe public-private sector wage gap in Scotland in 2000 is analysed using the extensionsample of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS). Employing an endogenous switchingmodel, and testing for double sample selection from the participation decision and sectorchoice, the unadjusted wage gap is shown to be 10 per cent for males and 24 per cent forfemales. For males this is mainly due to differences in productive characteristics andselectivity. For females the picture is more ambiguous. Findings also suggest that thereexists a substantial wage premium for male private sector employees. While there is noevidence of a sample selection bias for females, the sector choice of males is systematicallycorrelated with unobservables. Furthermore, the structural switching regression indicates thatexpected wage differentials between sectors are an important driving force for sectoralassignment.en_US
