dc.description.abstract This paper examines the wage differentials between male and female white-collar workers and physicians over a sixteen-year period. Holding education, potential experience, marital and family status, geographical location and type of work place, women white-collar workers and physicians were still seen to have lower wages in the five years studied. Physicians, both male and female, received larger wages than other white-collar workers. On average, the gender wage gap for physicians was larger than that of white-collar workers. Over the sixteen-year period the sex wage gap decreased for both groups. In the sixteen-year period physicians’ gender wage gap decreased more than that of white-collar workers. en
