    The Research Group on discrimination, poverty, and the labor market will build new measures of discrimination based on survey experiments. Whereas the typical experimental study of discrimination is a one-shot assessment, this research group is developing methods for monitoring trends in discrimination via regularized survey experiments. The chapter describes one of the real structural inequalities in the labour market: occupational segregation. It provides evidence on the types of jobs and occupations women and men are most likely to do and decomposes overall occupational segregation, following the methodology proposed, by the same authors, into vertical and horizontal dimensions, to show how much of the overall segregation.

On Gender, Labor, and Inequality presents four decades of Milkman's essential writings, tracing the parallel evolutions of her ideas and the field she helped define.

Inequality at the top of the distribution is associated with more segregation of the rich, while inequality at the bottom and declines in labor demand for less-skilled men are associated with residential isolation of the poor.
