We revisit evidence on the contribution of firms to the gender wage gap using a cluster-based approach to investigate time series and life-cycle patterns as well as
match effects by gender. This also relaxes usual sample restrictions, resulting in larger estimates of the contribution of firms, driven by a higher within-firm component. Further, despite a decline in the unconditional gender wage gap between 1995 and 2015, the gap in firm pay premiums and its decomposition remained constant. It increases with age, exclusively driven by the between-firm component. Finally we find limited evidence of complementarities for both men and women.) Joint with Marco Palladino and Mark Stabile.
