Abstract

This book is on both, unexplored mechanisms and unexplored outcomes of discrimination. The first part of this volume is a major attempt to tackle issues of individual unobserved ability, self-selection into career paths and schooling choices and their role in assessing the gender wage gap. The second part of the book is on these unexplored dimensions of discrimination, and a particular attention is placed on physical appearance, obesity, religion and sexual orientation. One of the reasons why these dimensions have been less considered by empirical research is that it is extremely hard to gather information on these characteristics.
