Collective bargaining advantage by demographic group, 2011
|Collective bargaining advantage**|
|New immigrants (less than 10 years)|

** Regression-adjusted collective bargaining advantage controlling for experience, education, region, industry, occupation, and marital status
Note: Observations with imputed wage data are omitted.
Table 4. Collective bargaining advantage by demographic group, 2011. “Collective bargaining coverage” is tabulated from Current Population Survey Outgoing Rotation Group microdata. “Collective bargaining advantage” values are the coefficients on collective bargaining coverage in a model of log hourly wages with controls for education, experience as a quartic, marital status, region, industry (12) and occupation (9), race and ethnicity, and gender where appropriate. For this analysis we only use observations that do not have imputed wages. This is because the imputation process does not take collective bargaining status into account and therefore biases the estimated advantage toward zero.
