The Gender Gap in Earnings Occurs at All Educational Levels

Data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that at every educational level, women continue to earn less than men. In fact, as women and men move up the educational ladder there is very little improvement in the gender earnings gap. For high school graduates, women earn 69 percent of the earnings of men. For college graduates, women earn 71 percent of what men earn.

The fact that women are less likely than men to be employed as year-round, full-time workers plays a major role in the gender gap in earnings.
