Are Immigrants Discriminated in the Australian Labour Market? 12:10 Mon 7 May 12 :: 5.57 Ingkarni Wardli :: Ms Wei Xian Lim :: University of Adelaide
In this talk, I will present what I did in my honours project, which was to determine if immigrants, categorised as immigrants from English speaking countries and Non-English speaking countries, are discriminated in the Australian labour market. To determine if discrimination exists, a decomposition of the wage function is applied and analysed via regression analysis. Two different methods of estimating the unknown parameters in the wage function will be discussed:
1. the Ordinary Least Square method,
2. the Quantile Regression method.
This is your rare chance of hearing me talk about non-nanomathematics related stuff!
