Inter-Temporal Decompositions of Labour Market and Social Outcomes

Anh Le, Paul Miller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper compares the Wellington (1993) and Smith and Welch (1989) decompositions of changes in labour market outcomes over time. The two examples considered are differences by gender in educational attainment and the gender wage differential. The results suggest that even though the procedure developed by Wellington (1993) has been favoured in recent research, the Smith and Welch decomposition is a more informative approach.
