An investigation of the economic, social and political forces that have produced the Black American underclass in Shaw, a crime-ridden neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Observes that, following the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s and the riots of 1968, the stable Black middle class moved out of the area. Explores the following themes: economic decline, addiction to crack and other drugs, lawlessness, teen-age pregancy, and the long and desperate search for employment on the part of those without specialised skills

Gender Differences in Rates of Job Dismissal: Why Are Men More Likely to Lose Their Jobs? by Roger W Wilkins( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empirical studies have consistently reported that rates of involuntary job separation, or dismissal, are significantly lower among female employees than among males. Only rarely, however, have the reasons for this differential been the subject of detailed investigation. In this paper, household panel survey data from Australia are used that also find higher dismissal rates among men than among women. This differential, however, largely disappears once controls for industry and occupation are included. These findings suggest that the observed gender differential primarily reflects systematic differences in the types of jobs into which men and women select. -- dismissals ; gender differentials ; involuntary job separations ; HILDA Survey ; Australia

Measuring top incomes using tax record data : a cautionary tale from Australia by Richard V Burkhauser( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atkinson, Piketty, and Saez (2011) survey an important new literature using income tax-based data to measure the share of income held by top income groups. But changes in tax legislation that expand the tax base to include income sources (e.g. capital gains, dividends, etc.) disproportionately held by these groups will conflate such an expansion with an increase in the share of income they hold. We provide a cautionary tale from Australia of how comprehensive tax reform legislation in 1985 substantially altered Australian top income series, especially those that do not separate taxable realized capital gains from other taxable income

Measuring minimum award wage reliance in Australia : the HILDA survey experience by Roger W Wilkins( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An important group of interest for industrial tribunals in Australia is those workers who are reliant on awards for their pay and other employment conditions. Research on award reliance and its consequences, however, has long been hampered by the lack of good quality microdata. Most obviously, there are relatively few data sets in Australia that identify the method by which pay is set and also provide detailed information about individuals and the households in which they live. The HILDA Survey, however, is an exception to this, with information about award reliance, and methods of pay setting more generally, being collected for the first time in its 8th survey wave (in 2008). This paper reviews the quality of the data on award reliance that is being collected from this source. It then provides two examples of how these data can inform policy-relevant research questions: (i) to what extent are award-reliant workers found living in income-poor households; and (ii) what role does award reliance play in contributing to the gender pay gap? The results confirm that award-reliant workers are not especially concentrated in poor households, and that for award-reliant workers there is no evidence of any gender-based pay gap."
