Gender Wage Gap : synthesis of findings

Why do women earn less than men? Is it because they are overrepresented in professions that are at the lower end of the pay scale? Because they place a greater value on non-pecuniary aspects of a job? Because they have greater family responsibilities? Or because of gender stereotypes in the workplace? Written by Carole Vincent, the most recent CRDCN synthesis sheds light on the evolution and the persistence of the gender wage gap in Canada by examining these hypotheses based on the evidence generated by an important body of research using Statistics Canada’s detailed microdata files. You can also read the Research Highlight or listen to the presentation Carole made about it at the 2012 Network’s conference.
