Summary:
Alternative models to explain the variability in income differentials. between Black males and White males over thirty-two Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs) were estimated by ordinary least squares using cross-sectional data for each of three points in time - 1950, 1960, and 1970. Two models were tested for each time period . The Becker-type model used a Black-White male median income ratio as a dependent variable with age, education, three occupational mix variables, and current population as the independent variables. The second model used the same variables with the exception that current population was replaced by population lagged ten years. All variables were in Black-White ratio form. The results are of interest to the student of the economics of discrimination, since the methodology can be applied to the examination and comparison between any two categories of people.
