We explore the possible presence of polarization in the wage distribution for Italy, Spain and Portugal, using both descriptive statistics and the Mover Stayer model to evaluate its long-run behavior. We find that Italy and Spain are characterized by an increasing polarization, mainly due to a rise in the percentage of part-time workers, whereas Portugal maintains a unimodal wage’s distribution.

Abstract

We explore the possible presence of polarization in the wage distribution for Italy, Spain and Portugal, using both descriptive statistics and the Mover Stayer model to evaluate its long-run behavior. We find that Italy and Spain are characterized by an increasing polarization, mainly due to a rise in the percentage of part-time workers, whereas Portugal maintains a unimodal wage’s distribution.
