Estimates of the gender employment gap

Estimates of the gender employment gap

This data contains the estimates of gender employment gaps for 1600 countries, spanning from Kazakhstan to Spain and covering 30 years of history. The estimates of gender employment gap are adjusted for individual characteristics. We use this data to ask if the existing instruments are sufficient to further reduce the gender inequality in employment. The .rar file contains the codes and databases needed to replicate the main results from the article "How (not) to make women work?" by Joanna Tyrowicz, Lucas van der Velde and Karolina Goraus

DTA files contain estimates of the gender employment gap obtained using Nopo (2008) decomposition for all the countries in the sample plus additional controls. The availability of countries/years and data sources is covered in Appendix C here.
