Note however that the estimations depend largely on the available dataset. More observed variables could enlarge the explained portion of the wage gap.

Detailed in Malta, Mendes Tavares, Martinez, and Kolovich (IMF Working Paper, forthcoming).
Micro level data comes from the 2011 Household Survey: “Enquête de Suivi de la Pauvreté Au Senegal—ESPS II, 2011,” which is the latest available comprehensive household survey containing individual and household level data on both social and economic characteristics (including earnings).
We calculate the income Gini coefficient using the 2011 Household Survey.
If one considers all working-age population, this average would drop to 67 percent.
Percentiles in which years of education for boys or girls are already higher than 5 years are not affected by the measure.
For simplicity we assume that costs of increasing years of education are perfectly linear to years of schooling.
