Adamovic, M., & Leibbrandt, A. (2022). A large‐scale field experiment on occupational gender segregation and hiring discrimination. Industrial Relations: A Journal of Economy and Society.

We analyze the relationship between occupational gender composition andgender discrimination in recruitment and investigate whether there is hiringdiscrimination against men in female‐dominated occupations. We do this with alarge‐scale field experiment where we submitted more than 12,000 jobapplications for 12 occupations in Australia, varying the gender of theapplicants. Men received around 50% more callbacks than women inmale‐dominated occupations, while they received over 40% fewer callbacks infemale‐dominated occupations.
