Labour Market Statistics (Income): June 2017 quarter
The gender pay gap was 9.4 percent in the June 2017 quarter, down from 12.0 percent in the June 2016 quarter, Stats NZ said today. This is the smallest gender pay gap in five years, after women’s hourly pay rose at a faster pace than men’s in the past year.
“Recently, there's been a spotlight on gender pay inequality in New Zealand,” labour and income statistics manager Sean Broughton said.
"The decrease from a 12 percent gap last year is the biggest drop in the gender pay gap since the series began in 1998.” The gender pay gap is a way to understand the differences in pay between men and women.
