Decomposing pay gaps across the wage distribution

Decomposing pay gaps across the wage distribution: investigating inequalities of ethno-religious groups and disabled people is an ISER Working Paper.

The paper provides a contemporary account of inequalities in pay of disabled people and those from selected minority ethno-religious groups. It investigates whether pay gaps are a consequence of individual earning potential as represented, for example, by educational qualifications, or whether they appear to stem from the particular occupations or types of occupation that the minority groups are concentrated into; or whether they are largely unaccounted for.
