dc.description.abstract This study re-examines how variations in market power across industries affect the relative number of females and males hired in a given occupation. The study builds upon similar work done by Sharon Oster (1975) to examine the female to male wage differences. Both market power and human capital factors such as education are considered as possible sources of the male/female differentials. The findings show market power in both output and input markets to be a significant factor in most of the occupations analyzed. Educational attainment of females to males is also a significant determinant of the male/female wage and employment differentials across occupations. en_US
