The results in general confirm earlier findings, with minor nuances. In all six countries, the distribution in nearly all labour markets shows quite close approximation to the log-normal. But there are exceptions which may be regarded as significant; divergences of more than 5% are marked on the table (smaller divergences, in view of the approximative nature of the calculation and random variations in the precise figures, cannot be regarded as significant). For manual workers, the divergences from the log-normal curve are all found at the lower end of the distributions and are of two kinds.
The same is true for Italian non-manual, but not for manual, workers. Again the egalitarian pattern of the pay structures in Germany is associated with low degrees of positive skewness in all four labour markets; the German pay dispersions are not only narrow, but relatively symmetrical. This also applies to the Netherlands. On the other hand, the relatively unequal pay distributions in Britain are not associated with particularly high degrees of skewness; in Britain, the dispersions are wide - by comparison with most of the other countries - in both the upper and lower pay ranges.
The equalizing, however, took place in jumps, of which some can be associated with the developments in incomes policy17. Thus the greater part of the equalization occurred after 1972; it was in April 1973 ('Stage 2' of the Conservative government's incomes policies) that, for the first time, the policy forms' included quite explicit preferences for lower-paid workers (flat-rate elements in terms of £ per week in permitted increases). 31 Note: * Including workers whose pay was affected by absence Source: NES 1979 policy).
