Gender Differences in Rent Sharing and its Implications for the Gender Wage Gap
Abstract: Based on a large matched employer-employee data set for
Sweden, this study analyses gender differences in rent sharing. Results
indicate a general pattern of significantly smaller remuneration from firm
profits for women. Gender differences in rent sharing, however, explain
less than two percent of gender wage differentials. This is not unexpected,
as gender differences are found not in the mean profit levels of employing
firms, but in remuneration from firm profit.
