This interactive tool allows you to find out the gender pay gaps and average earnings in a wide range of jobs. It also shows how many women and men work in each role.

This article contains data from the Annual Survey of Earnings and Hours, 2016. But you can also explore the gender pay gap and test your knowledge using the latest data from the 2017 Annual Survey of Earnings and Hours.

At 18.1%, the gap in average pay between men and women, for all employees, is the lowest since records began.

The gender pay gap does not show differences in rate of pay for comparable jobs.

The underlying causes are more complex and may include:

  • more women work in lower paid jobs or sectors.

  • women are more likely to work part-time, which can mean a lower rate of pay.

  • women are under-represented in senior roles. This may be due to stereotypical attitudes about gender roles, lack of flexible working or women taking time to look after their family.

So what is the gender pay gap for your job? Enter your job to find out.
