HIGHLIGHTS OF WOMEN'S EARNINGS IN 2013 [8 December 2014]

http://www.bls.gov/opub/reports/cps/highlights-of-womens-earnings-in-2013.pdf

[full-text, 72 pages]

 

In 2013, women who were full-time wage and salary workers had median usual weekly earnings of $706. On

average in 2013, women made 82 percent of the median weekly earnings of male full-time wage and salary workers

($860). In 1979, the first year for which comparable earnings data are available, women earned 62 percent of

what men earned. (See chart 1 and tables 1 and 12.)

 

This report presents earnings data from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a national monthly survey of

approximately 60,000 households conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau for the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

(BLS). Information on earnings is collected from onefourth of the CPS sample each month. It is important to

note that the comparisons of earnings in this report are on a broad level and do not control for many factors that

can be significant in explaining earnings differences. See the accompanying technical notes section for more

information, including a description of the source of the data and an explanation of the concepts and definitions

used in this report.
