Dozent(en): Johannes Giesecke, Ben Jann


Is the difference in wages between men and women (the gender wage gap) due to less labor market experience of women compared to men, or is it due to discrimination against women, for example, because labor market experience of women is valued less than labor market experience of men? 

The seminar introduces the statistical concepts of decomposition methods, provides an overview of various approaches, and makes students familiar with the application of the methods and the interpretation of their results. Theoretical inputs and practical exercises (using Stata) will be alternated throughout the course.
