presentation at
 The University of Mary Washington
 Lee Hall, Room 411, 7pm -  8pm
 Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

The presentation highlights work by Dr. Hilary M. Lips, professor and chair of psychology and director of the Center for Gender Studies at Radford University. Using current and historical data from the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics surveys (the CPS, ACS, ATUS), the General Accounting Office (GAO) and other sources, Dr. Lips' PowerPoint-based presentation emphasizes the challenges, difficulties and controversies in assessing the gender wage gap. In this presentation special emphasis is given to the statistics employed (medians vs. means; income vs. earnings), to the time intervals used in comparisons (annual vs. weekly vs. hourly), to the "typical" adjustments used in controlling for  gender differences in earnings (race/ethnicity, education, martial-family & motherhood status, work experience ), to the issue of occupational choice, the use of the human capital model, and finally the accuracy in predicting the gender pay gap.
