Abstract

This article is the first to estimate the magnitude and determinants of a wage differential by disability status in the context of an agrarian labour market through a wage decomposition method. In rural Uttar Pradesh, India, we find evidence of an unexplained wage gap in favour of nondisabled men of 8% after controlling for selection bias into employment and using different reference groups for wage decomposition.
