Geijtenbeek and Plug (2015) 性転換からみる男女間賃金格差

男女間賃金格差(差別)を検証するために,性転換者の性転換前後の賃金を比較した論文.性転換前後で個人の能力・特性に変化はないが,女性に性転換した者は賃金が下がり,男性に性転換した者は賃金が少し上がった.こういったデータを行政(オランダ)が持っていてしかも利用できるものなんだな.まだDPだがいずれどこかにパブリッシュされるだろう.

Abstract
We study the earnings of transsexuals using Dutch administrative labor force data. First, we compare transsexuals to other women and men, and find that transsexuals earn more than women and less than men. Second, we compare transsexuals before and after transition using worker fixed effects models, and find a fall in earnings for men who become women and a smaller rise (if any) in earnings for women who become men. These earnings patterns, which hold for annual as well as hourly earnings, are consistent with a labor market model in which workers are discriminated for being female and transsexual.
