This paper estimates the contribution of covariates for the regional wage decomposition components along the wage distribution in Portugal. It finds that education, occupation, and firm size are the most important factors in explaining the growing importance of the composition effect. The wage structure effect, in turn, is mainly determined by differences in reward for experience and tenure. Moreover, it concludes that the importance of these covariates for both effects is not equal along the wage distribution
