Title:Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition for Tobit models PDF Logo
Authors:Bauer, Thomas K.

Abstract:In this paper, a decomposition method for Tobit-models is derived, which allows the differences in a censored outcome variable between two groups to be decomposed into a part that is explained by differences in observed characteristics and a part attributable to differences in the estimated coefficients. The method is applied to a decomposition of the gender wage gap using German data.
