Factors affecting the incomes of men and women physicians: an exploratory analysis.

Abstract

Income differences between men and women physicians are analyzed using data from the Americal Medical Association's 1973 Eighth Periodic Survey of Physicians. While women tend to possess less favorable professional characteristics in terms of income-earning potential, the returns to many characteristics associated with higher incomes are greater for women than for men. Additional evidence on differences in weekly hours worked is presented in an effort to explain the lower incomes of women doctors.
