Abstract

In the May 1978 issue of The Canadian Journal of Economics, Roberta Robb attributed between 58.9 per cent (standardized for occupation and industry) and 75.4 per cent (not standardized) of the male-female Ontario earnings differential in 1971 to sexual discrimination. We should like to point out several flaws in the analysis.
