UPDATE 3/25/22, from our NHWF Weekly newsletter:
The U.S. Census Bureau’s most recent data from the 2020 American Community Survey was made available last week and includes important data that provides insights related to New Hampshire women and girl’s health, education, and economic well-being. The New Hampshire Women’s Foundation will be using this data in future briefs, reports, and posts that highlight the trends, disparities, and opportunity for New Hampshire women and girls.
A highlight from the data finds that New Hampshire women continue to face significant economic gender disparities, showing little progress, and in some cases a regression, compared to past years.
Gender Wage Gap Widens in New Hampshire — This new data shows that in 2020, New Hampshire women made 80 cents for every dollar a man made, compared to 82 cents in 2019. This grows the gender wage gap from 18 cents to 20 cents.
EQUAL PAY DAY info, 3/15/22
In New Hampshire, the gender pay gap is 18% — that means New Hampshire women earn 82 cents for each dollar a man makes.
The gap is even wider for women of color.
