Abstract

This is a report on research undertaken by Professor Wendy Olsen, Dr Vanessa Gash, Sook Kim, and Dr Min Zhang on behalf of the Government Equalities Office.

The primary aim of this research is to identify the factors that influence the gender pay gap in the UK.

The work uses decomposition techniques to analyse the main predictors of the gender pay gap using waves of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) and the United Kingdom Household Longitudinal Survey (UKHLS) relating to 2014 to 2015.

The gender pay gap is the difference between men’s and women’s average hourly earnings.
