Tate, Illinois, Wage Gap Statistics

The wage gap, also called the gender pay gap, is pervasive in the United States. Men make more than women in every state, at every education level, and in every major occupation category.

The data here is from the American Community Survey (ACS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The ACS publishes estimates on median earnings each year—that is, income earned as wages, salaries, tips, and bonuses from work (or receipts minus expenses for self-employment).

Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. For locations with populations under 60,000, the ACS is only available in 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period.

Note that each chart shows data for a distinct population under consideration. For example, the chart on educational attainment only includes data for people with earnings 25 years and older; the chart on occupation includes data only for full-time, year-round civilians with earnings.
