Abstract: 
East Germany underwent rapid transition from a socialist to a market economy since the fall of the Berlin Wall. We are interested in whether women are better off or worse off relative to men as a result of this transition. We use the German Socio-Economic Panel Data 1990-1997 to study wage determination and implement a decomposition analysis which accounts for selection bias issues. Our analysis shows that even though the gender wage gap is shrinking, discrimination is not.
