Marriage, Partnership and Sexual Orientation: A Study of British University Academics and Administrators
by Alison L. Booth, Jeff Frank
(May 2008)
published in: Review of Economics of the Household, 2008, 6 (4), 409-422

Abstract:
Using a unique data source on marital status, partnership and sexual orientation of academics and administrators at British universities, we estimate the impact of personal relationships upon earnings for men and women. While university data cover a relatively homogeneous group of workers, the two sides of the university are very different, with administrative jobs being more like the general job market in the economy. We find a large and significant married male premium, but only on the administrative side of the university. There is no female marriage premium, and no partnership return to gay men or to either heterosexual or homosexual women.
