dc.description.abstractWe compare male and female upward labor income mobility in Germany and the UnitedStates using the GSOEP-PSID Cross-National Equivalent File. Our main interest is totest whether a glass ceiling exists for women. Conventional thinking about the glassceiling highlights the belief that the playing field is level for women and men in the labormarket up to a certain point, after which there is an effective limit on advancement forwomen. We examine the glass ceiling hypothesis by looking at the income dynamics ?the movement of women and men through the distribution of income over time. We findthat there is considerable evidence in favor of a glass ceiling both in Germany and theUnited States with men having approximately a 30% premium in their upward incomemobility compared to women in the upper income classes. We also find significant, butsmaller, differences at middle and low income levels for both countries.en_US
