  1. Notes: the total gap Δ is Δx + Δm + Δf + Δo; Δo is the wage structure effect and Δx is the endowment effect, defined over the common support in the case of Ñopo (2008); Δmf) is the contribution of the differences in the characteristics of males (females) who were matched to female (male) characteristics and those who were not matched with female (male) characteristics; percent M is the percentage of males that were matched to females; percent F is the percentage of females that were matched to males; the set of variables used in the Ñopo and the FFL estimations are age and dummy variables for education, marriage, urban residence, Tbilisi, Georgian, skills, industry, state, and working hours
