At a glance – gender pay gap report

The gender pay gap is defined as the difference between the mean or median hourly pay rate that female and male colleagues receive.

The mean pay gap is the difference between hourly earnings for women and men, taking the sum of all hourly rates divided by the total number of women or men in the sample.

The median pay gap is the difference between the midpoints in the ranges of hourly earnings between men and women. It takes all salaries in the sample, lines them up in order from lowest to highest, and picks the middle-most salary.
