The Wage Effect of Computer-use in Norway

Sammendrag

Use of computers at work has undeniably transformed the way jobs are organized but is there productivity premium attached to their use? This paper employs earnings functions to estimate various specifications in an attempt to investigate the relationship between computer use and wages. We utilize a Norwegian cross-section data and a comprehensive set of control variables. In addition we specify literacy skills scores in an effort to control for skills termed as unobservable in many previous researches on this subject. Our estimates provide a proof that no substantial premium is attached to computer use at work.
