Abstract

By applying decomposition analysis in this study I have explored the effect of education in each of six occupational categories between 1986 and 1989. Previous studies have shown that earnings inequality came about because of the more homogeneous earnings within each category in industry, occupation, and firm size, but not in education. However, if the occupational variable is controlled, education does not show the same trend. First, in the administration and service categories, earnings inequality of the educational level unexpectedly increased during 1986-89, due to widened variations within each educational level. Second, in the professional and production categories, earnings inequality was reduced due to more homogeneous earnings within each educational level. Third, in the clerical and sales categories, earnings inequality decreased due to less variation in mean earnings between educational levels.
