This paper uses October Household Survey (OHS) and Labour Force Survey (LFS) data to establish whether the real earnings gap between highly skilled and low skilled workers active in the formal sector of the South African economy in the period 1995 to 2003 narrowed or widened. It also assesses changes in the earnings gap in that period between whites and other race groups, and between men and women.
