Glass Ceiling and the Paper Floor: Gender Differences among Top Earners, 1981-2012
Fatih Guvenen (au); Greg Kaplan (au); Jae Song (au)
This study analyzes changes in the gender structure at the top of the earnings distribution in the U.S. over the last 30 years using a sample of individual earnings histories from the Social Security Admin. Despite making large inroads, females still constitute a small proportion of the top percentiles: the glass ceiling, albeit a thinner one, remains. The authors measure the contribution of changes in labor force participation, changes in the persistence of top earnings, and changes in industry and age composition to the change in the gender composition of top earners. A large proportion of the increased share of females among top earners is due to the mending of the äóģpaper flooräó¯ -- the phenomenon whereby female top earners were much more likely than male top earners to drop out of the top percentiles. The authors also provide new evidence at the top of the earnings distribution for both genders. Figures and and tables. This is a print on demand report.
