Abstract
Research on the fatherhood wage premium has found the premium to differ by race, occupation, marital status and the degree of specialization in the division of labor. This paper attempts to see if two additional aspects may be added: whether the premium varies between different regions and whether there is a difference between urban and rural areas. Using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth for the years 1982 to 1998 and a fixed effects model approach, the main findings in this paper suggest that there is a regional element and an urban element to the fatherhood wage premium.
