Gender Difference in skill content of jobs

Absztrakt
More than half of the gender wage gap can be attributed to differences in wages within occupation. Using the PIAAC survey, we show that women do less skill intensive tasks than men even within the same occupations. The gap in skill intensity cannot be explained by differential firm characteristics nor differences in cognitive skills. Instead, we show that skill intensity gap at the workplace is explained by the time spent in home production and the skill usage in leisure time. These empirical findings are consistent with a self-fulfilling equilibrium where statistical discrimination of firms causes gender differentials in skill use at the workplace and in leisure time at the same time.
