The Impact of Worker and Establishment-level Characteristics on Male-Female Wage Differentials: Evidence from Danish Matched Employee-Employer Data
() and Donna S. Rothstein

gender segregation at the above four levels through fixed effects or
through controls for the proportion of females within the four structures.
We find that occupation has a much larger role than industri or

wages in Denmark. In addition, men and women earn different wages within
