Investigating the gender wage gap in Vietnam by quantile regression: Sticky floor or glass ceiling
Trần Thị Tuấn Anh
Inequality between men and women in the labor market is one of the issues that is of great interest in labor economics. The sticky floor effect occurs when the gender wage gap widens at the lower tail of the wage distribution. The glass ceiling effect in wage exists if the gender wage gap at the top of the wage distribution is wider than other positions. This study uses the dataset of VHLSS2014 and adopts quantile regression to investigate the existence of glass ceiling and sticky floor in the Vietnam’s labor market. The overall results obtained of the entire sample show that there is sticky floor effect but no glass ceiling in the Vietnam’s labor market. However, the results are different when it comes to each labor group. In terms of urban and rural areas, the sticky floor exists, but the glass ceiling does not in both areas. In terms of state and private sectors, while the glass ceiling exists in state sector, the stick floor is only present in the private sector.

Purpose – The current review aims to examine the growth trajectory, most influential documents, intellectual
and conceptual structure of the literature regarding gender issues in family business research.
Design/methodology/approach – The bibliometric analysis was performed using 224 documents from
1991 to 2020 extracted from the Web of Science database.
Findings – The review finds that this field’s knowledge grew exponentially during the last three decades,
mainly after 2003 and the last several years. Based on the co-citation analysis, three major research lines are
identified: “Women’s challenges and opportunities in the family business”, “Gender diversity in the family
business corporate board”, and “Gender and family SMEs management.” The temporal co-word analysis
reveals that “Gender diversity in the family business corporate board” is the latest research line.
Originality/value – By reviewing prominent cited references and documents that cited them, the authors
provide the landscapes and research gaps of three major research lines for further development.

Due to the growing percentage share of urban dwellers, the physical distribution of products faces altering conditions. This research explores the effects that urbanization has on the performance of a fast-moving consumer goods distribution network. A focus is set on changes in distribution cost, the cost-minimal network design, and greenhouse gas emissions.
The analyses are based on a quantitative distribution network model of an existing manufacturer of consumer goods.
The results indicate that the foreseen population shift will affect the network's economic and environmental performance. Effects are, among others, due to differences in the efficiency of supplying urban and nonurban regions. The combined effects of urbanization and the development of the population size will even more affect the network's performance.
Research dealing with distribution logistics and urbanization primarily focuses on city logistics. In this paper, the object of analysis is the entire distribution system.
