Using data from the 1988 wave of the National Longitudinal Survey of Labor Market Experience of Youth on 12,686 Ss (aged 23-30 yrs at onset) the authors estimate weight-based wage penalties for young men and women. It was found that mildly obese (20% over standard weight) White women experience greater wage penalties than Black men experience for weight that is 100% over standard weight. Men do not experience wage penalties until their weight exceeds standard weight by over 100 lbs. ((c) 2000 APA/PsycINFO, all rights reserved).
