dc.description.abstractWe focus on one aspect of labour market discrimination in New Zealand, namely occupational segregation. Using unit record data from Statistics New Zealand’s 1997 to 2000 Income Surveys and controlling for productivity characteristics, we find evidence that Maori are consistently segregated into lower occupational classes than their measurable characteristics would predict. In addition, we estimate that discrimination of some form accounts for between 30% to 48% of the Pakeha/Maori wage differential.en_NZ
