Join us for this free online event co-organised with ESA/NSW-WEN to hear researchers Silvia Griselda and Elyse Dwyer discuss the findings of their recent research into the drivers of the gender pay gap in Australia. The event will be moderated by NSW WEN Chair Evie Fox Koob.


About the Seminar

Australian women earn on average 15% less per hour than men. What are the causes of this pay gap? Is it rooted in different occupational choices between men and women? Or does it reflect differences in pay across genders for identical occupations? We answer these questions using use population-wide taxation data covering the Australian workforce.


We find that approximately one-fifth of the estimated overall hourly gender wage gap is driven by men and women working in occupations with different pay rates. The remainder is driven by differences in pay within the same occupation.


Gender differences in personal characteristics such as full-time status, educational attainment, number of dependents, and Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) scores do not account for the gender pay gap within occupations nor do they explain why women sort into lower-paying occupations. Among university-educated individuals of similar ATARs, women are less likely to sort into higher-paying career options (e.g. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics or STEM). Marriage and parenthood have a different effect on women’s hourly earnings than men’s, which drives many of the differences in hourly pay within occupations.

About the event

Subject and Abstract to be advised

 

Bio

My research interests lie in the intersection of Bayesian statistics, econometrics and development economics. I most often do applied econometrics aimed at measuring generalisability and quantifying uncertainty around our knowledge base in development economics and economics more broadly.  I focus on Bayesian modelling of treatment effect heterogeneity at multiple levels within data sets and literatures.
