Separating Fact from Fiction on Earnings (SIPTU document)

Manus O’Riordan has published an interesting document titled ‘Separating Fact from Fiction on Earnings: The Use and Abuse of Statistics’. You can find it here.

It’s findings are similar to those articulated by Prof John Geary in Industrial Relations News two weeks ago. You can read this here.

Both challenge the methodological attempt to establish a definitive wage differential across the public-private sector. An argument that is also made by Fiona O’Callaghan and Patrick Foley in the Central Statistics Office in a paper presented at the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland.
