Abstract This paper examines whether the recent increase in male wage volatility varies by marital
status and spousal work status. Using the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), we
estimate separately a standard residual wage process for all men, married men, and married
men with a working spouse over the 1967-2010 period. We find that all three groups of men
shared similar trends in the variances of both persistent and transitory wage shocks. Married
men, including those with a working wife, experienced a smaller increase in their wage
volatility compared to all men, yet the differences between the two groups are small.
