McGinnis SL, Moore J. An analysis of racial/ethnic pay disparities among hospital nurses in New York City. Policy Polit Nurs Pract. 2009;10(4):252-8.
Despite growing concern over cultural competence and diversity in the registered nursing (RN) workforce, minority RNs working in hospitals in New York City who were surveyed in 2007 earned less on average than their non-Hispanic White counterparts. Regression decomposition was applied to these data to investigate how much of the differential could be attributed to different characteristics of different racial/ethnic groups and how much could be attributed to differential valuation of characteristics between racial/ethnic groups.
