  1. Dependent variable: first difference of log nominal wage. Sample period: 2006-2009. Where indicated, the controls comprise educational level and type, region of birth and civil status. The constant is not reported. Robust standard errors are reported within parenthesis. ***: significant at the 1 per cent level; **: significant at the 5 per cent level; *: significant at the 10 per cent level. The coefficients and standard errors for Male and Age have been multiplied by 100, and the coefficient and standard errors for Age squared by 1002.
