Changing gap in wages paid to women and men

Mouse over the charts to see the values
The gender pay gap (GPG) is defined as GPG = ((Em – Ew)/ Em)*100, where Em stands for the average wage of men and Ew is the average wage of women (see ILO, 2012b). The change in the GPG is defined as the average of the GPG between 2008 and 11 minus the average of the GPG between 1997 and 2007.
Data are not available for all countries for all years; averages for the two periods are calculated using the data available for each country during both periods.
