Research Reports

graduatingtoapaygap-232px-fullcoverGraduating to a Pay Gap: The Earnings of Women and Men One Year After College Graduation (2012)—This report explores the earnings difference between female and male college graduates who are working full time one year after graduation. The report, which uses the latest nationally representative data, compares apples to apples by looking at the pay gap after controlling for various factors known to affect earnings, such as occupation, college major, and hours worked. It also examines one immediate effect that the pay gap has on many women: the heavy burden of student loan debt.

The Gender Pay Gap (2010)—While educational gains for women are often credited with helping to shrink the gender gap in earnings, this report reveals that women typically earn 77 cents for every $1 that their male counterparts earn. And while men typically earn more than women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) occupations, as in other fields, the pay gap tends to be smaller in STEM fields.  Also check out the related report, Behind the Gender Gap, published in 2007.

wheregirlsare_coverWhere the Girls Are (2008)—A comprehensive look at girls’ educational achievement during the past 35 years, paying special attention to the relationship between girls’ and boys’ progress.
