Specifically, the match between high-quality workers and high-quality plants is significantly tighter in large cities relative to small cities. Wages in large cities are higher not only because of the higher worker quality, but also because of a stronger assortative matching. Strong assortative matchig in large cities magnifies wage differences caused by worker sorting, and is a key factor in explaining the growth of geographical wage disparities over the last three decades.</dcterms:abstract> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
