Wage variance, residual wage variance, and composition-adjusted residual wage variance for men, 1979–2007

Note: The values in the composition-adjusted series from 1979–1982 are not directly comparable to the later years in this series because of the major expansion of occupations that occurred between 1982 and 1983. See Table 5A for further explanation.
