New website reveals Gender Pay Gap by profession

Makbool Javaid

The Government Equalities Office has launched a new online tool that allows the public to find out the gender pay gap for their occupation. The online tool, created by the Government and the Office for National Statistics, has been launched following publication of Gender Pay Gap Regulations 2016,  which will require large employers to report their gender pay and gender bonus pay gaps from next April. The online tool uses the latest data from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings to provide the most up to date gender pay gap data. That data currently shows that the national gender pay gap is 18.1% and the online tool will show the gender pay gap by profession, so that the public can see how their job measures up against the national average.
