Sex differences abound in labor markets.
In the United States three differences in particular have attracted the most
attention: the earnings gap, occupational segregation, and the greater
responsibility of women for child care and housework, and consequential lower
participation in the labor market.
This volume brings together David
Neumark's work of the past fifteen years: in it he tries to understand and
analyze the relative importance of family economic decision-making and sex
discrimination in generating sex differences in labor markets. Neumark's
research covers three main levels of inquiry. The first studies
non-discriminatory sources of sex differences in labor markets; the second
grapples with the problem of sex discrimination; while the third evaluates
policies to combat and reduce sex differences in labor markets.
