Answer: Which of the following is a reason for discrepancy in pay between men and women? b. [ discrimination Economic research has identified numerous factors that contribute to the observed difference between wages paid to women and wages paid to men, commonly called the gender wage gap. Many relate to differences in the choices and behavior of women and men in balancing their work, personal,
and family lives. These factors include, most notably, the occupations and industries in which they work, and their human capital development, work experience, career interruptions, and motherhood. Other factors are sources of wage adjustments that compensate specific groups of workers for benefits or duties that disproportionately impact them. These factors include health insurance, other fringe benefits, and overtime work. This report presents, first, an integrative summary of pertinent economic research that has investigated possible sources of the observed difference between the earnings of women and men. Then, it presents results from a statistical analysis of the gender wage gap that, based on evidence from that research, has expanded the set of possible explanatory factors that have been examined using data from the Current Population Survey. The report demonstrates that it is not possible now, and doubtless will never be possible, to determine reliably whether any portion of the observed gender wage gap is not attributable to factors that compensate women and men differently on socially acceptable bases, and hence can confidently be attributed to overt discrimination against women. consad.com › ... › Full Text Reports and Papers ]

In what kind of economy does the government decide on production and consumption? A) Command economy B) Mixed economy C) Traditional economy D) Market economy
Weegy: Economists generally recognize three distinct types of economic system. These are 1) command economies; 2) market economies and 3) traditional economies. [ Each of these kinds of economies answers the three basic economic questions (What to produce, how to produce it, for whom to produce it) in different ways. In a command economy, the government decides the answers to the three basic questions. It decides what will be made, how they will be made, and who will get them. Recently, pure command economies have usually been communist countries. Good examples today would be North Korea and China. ] (More)
