dc.description.abstractThis project utilizes economic theory and econometric techniques to determine that salary discrimination based on both race and international status has been eliminated from the National Basketball Association as of the 2006-7 season. By studying the past research of wage discrimination in the NBA and the application of basketball-specific performance statistics within econometrics, this project adds to literature of sports economics, and agrees with previous researchers who suggest that wage discrimination in the labor market of professional basketball is no longer prevalent.en_US
