The determinants of industrial-sector earnings in Senegal

Svejnar, Jan

The paper presents an econometric framework for testing the determinants of the industrial-sector earnings in Senegal. Using relatively rich data from the 1976 Industrial Census it is possible to test several hypotheses and generate estimates, some of which could not be obtained within the context of developing countries before. The main results relate to the earnings effects of sex, ethnic background, occupational attainment, and industry characteristics.
