Professor Juhn’s research has focused on U.S. wage inequality and its causes and the impact of changing wage structure on other labor market outcomes, such as employment and unemployment, and the racial wage gap. Her current work examines issues in earnings instability, family labor supply, impact of trade reforms on wage inequality and gender gap in developing countries, and the effect of disease and mortality on fertility decisions in Africa.
