Publication abstract:

The existence of a gender wage gap is widely documented in many labour markets. This technical report disaggregates graduate labour market data from the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) and the Beyond Graduation Survey (BGS) to investigate the nature of the gender wage gap in the Australian graduate labour market over the decade 2002-11. As expected from prior research and a large body of anecdotal evidence, we find evidence of a gender wage gap favouring men in the Australian graduate labour market.
