Gender Differences in Rent Sharing and its Implications for the Gender Wage Gap

Lena Nekby

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.
