Occupational Segregation

Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial Issuepeer-review


In this article, we describe trends in and patterns of occupational segregation and discuss their implications for the
gender gap in wages, an especially important form of inequality. We take on four questions in turn: Is the U.S. occupational
structure deeply segregated by gender? Is segregation
declining? Which occupations are most segregated? And is
the gender gap in wages driven mainly by occupational segregation?
