The gender pay gap: Male and female average salary by career and industry [INFOGRAPHIC]

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Our research into the pay males and females in Australia receive, and presented here in this infographic highlights the gender pay gap challenge.

Women have been closing the workforce participation gap over the last decade. In 2002, the percentage of males employed was 18 percentage points more than women, while today it is just 14 percentage points.

However, over the same time period, the pay gap between males and females has grown, largely due to the rising salaries in the industries and careers that are mostly male dominated, compared to the female dominated areas.

The top three industries by highest median salary are also the three industries with the highest percentage of males employed compared to females (mining, construction and utilities). However the three industries with the highest percentage of female employees are in the bottom quarter of industries by median salary (healthcare, education and retail).

It is a similar situation with careers: the job with the highest percent of men employed (machinery operator) has a higher average salary than the job with the highest percent of females employed (clerical worker), and this is also true of the second and third ranked job by gender.

So for Australia’s 6.3 million male workers and 5.2 million female workers: here’s a look at your salaries.
