Abstract

In this paper we replicate and extend the wage curve proposed by Blanchflower and Oswald (1990). Our replication only partly confirms their findings. Our extensions relate to gender effects and to a refinement of the unemployment measure. The results show that wage curves for males and females differ. For females unemployment both has a wage effect and a discouraged worker effect. ?? 1992.
