Wage gaps Between the public and private sectors in Spain
Economics of Education Review Volume 17, Number 1 ISSN 0272-7757 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Based on data from the last household survey conducted by the Instituto Nacional de Estadı́stica in 1990–1991, we estimate separate earnings equations by sector of employment and gender, treating the choice of employment sector as endogenous. From these results we compare the wage-generating process for each subgroup and identify the returns to human capital of males and females working in the public and private sectors. We then decompose overall wage gaps by sector for each gender in order to measure the contribution of education and other personal characteristics to public–private wage differentials and to evaluate the economic surplus that public sector workers receive compared to their private sector counterparts.
