In this paper, we study the effects of levels of gender segregation on private sector wages in Denmark. We ask the following questions: Does the concentration of women in certain occupations, industries, establishments, or job cells (occupations within establishments) account for most of the gender gap in wages? Or, after controlling for segregation within these structures, along with human capital characteristics, does a large gender wage differential still remain?
