dc.description.abstractThis study examines gender differences in the earnings of young adults in the 1980s and1990s. We determine changes in the gender gap over time in the middle, the tails, and thevariability of the earnings distribution. We employ data from two longitudinal, nationallyprobability samples of high school seniors: the National Longitudinal Study of high schoolseniors in 1972, and the High School and Beyond Study in 1980 (and the 5th and 4th followupstudies respectively). We compute the average differences using effect size estimatesexpressed in standard deviation units. Differences in the tails and the variability arecomputed using number and variance ratios respectively. Adjusting for employment selectionour findings reveal that once education, occupation, and marital status are taken into accountgender differences in earnings (in the middle, the tails, and the variance of the earningsdistribution) are eliminated. We observe similar results in gender differences for Whites,Blacks, and Hispanics.en_US
