Changes in family earnings inequality over time have been driven principally by changes in husbands’ earnings inequality. This supports the research effort into understanding the growth in wage inequality among men. Of secondary importance, family earnings inequality has been affected by the growth of wives’ earnings: if the employment of wives had not increased, the cohort growth in family earnings inequality would have been greater. The growing propensity of married women to work for pay has mitigated the increase in family earnings inequality.

To be clear, write annual earnings, y, as the product of hourly earnings, w, and annual work hours, h:y ¼ wh and, for convenience, use the ratio of earnings at the 90th percentile to earnings at the 10th percentile as the indicator of inequality for cohort c at experience x:y(9, c, x)/y(1, c, x). Form the change over cohorts in the logs of this measure of annual earnings inequality Dln [y(9)/y(1)] ¼ Dln w(9)ÀDln w (1)+Dln h (9)ÀDln h(1). Suppose the labor supply functions for workers at the 90th and 10th percentiles may be written as ln h(9) ¼ Z.

To this effect, in addition to earnings inequality among (a) all wives (including those not working for pay) and (b) all working wives, construct measures of earnings inequality among those (c) working at least 700 annual hours, (d) working at least 1,400 h per year, and (e) working at least 1,800 h per year.
