No 00-6:
Hit Twice? Danish Evidence on the Double-Negative Effect on the Wages of Immigrant Women

Leif Husted (), Helena Skyt Nielsen, Michael Rosholm () and Nina Smith ()

Abstract: In this paper, we investigate whether there is a double-negative effect on the wages of immigrant women in Denmark stemming from a negative effect from both gender and foreign country of origin. We estimate separate wage equations for Danes and a number of immigrant groups correcting for sample selection and individual specific effects. Based on a Danish panel of register data, we find that all women are affected by a substantial gender discrimination in wages, but only Pakistani women experience a double-negative effect.
