Women make up 21% of the respondents to the survey, 29% of students, and 17% of full-time workers. Women earn less than men overall, with respective median salaries of $50,500 and $68,953.
The largest wage differences are associated with North American and higher-income Asian countries, employment at not-for-profit organizations, and employment of 26-30 years. Wage gaps persist in most
demographic subsets of the data, though gaps are lower or non-existent in early career stages, and reversed in Oceania and Latin American and the Caribbean. Women in civilian government and military/defense earn more than men.
Women and men report similar levels of job satisfaction in most categories. The largest difference of opinion concerns fairness of pay: 71% or women feel that they are paid fairly, versus 79% of men. Nearly equal percentages of women (82%) and men (83%) would recommend their job to a child or a friend.
