Bloomberg News released a report ranking countries based on their gender pay gap. In this presentation, we take a look at the 10 countries with the widest gender gap in earnings.
Methodology: U.S. figures are for full-time, year-round workers ages 15 and older. Eurostat provided data for EU countries. Switzerland and Norway figures are for male and female paid employees working in industry, construction and services jobs (excluding public administration, defense and compulsory social security jobs). Data for remaining countries came from the OECD and are calculated as the difference between median earnings of men and women relative to median earnings of men. All data were the latest available.
