Data Insight: Using the Earnings and Employees Study 2011 to estimate Catholic-Protestant wage differentials
The Earnings and Employees Study (EES) 2011 links wage and employment data from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) for 2011 with detailed individual and household characteristics information, including religious denomination and community background, from the 2011 Census.
