Table 8 investigates compositional differences by comparing demographic characteristics by place of work. Column 1 shows that workers in the industrial sector and in the town center are 38% and 23%, respectively, more likely to be male. Column 2 shows that those working in the industrial sector have 2 more years of schooling, while those in the town center have 2.6 more years, compared to those working at home or in the neighborhood. Column 3 shows that high school completion appears to be more important for accessing jobs in the town center. Column 4 shows that the Javanese (the major ethnic group in Jakarta) are more likely to work in the industrial sector.
