Men’s median total income in 2010 was $1.54 for each dollar women received, my analysis of new U.S. Census data shows. The median — half make more, half less — was $32,137 a year for men, $20,831 for women.
Ignoring investment and other income, at the median men were paid $1.29 to the dollar earned by women in 2010. Men made $47,715 a year, women $36,931, a difference of $207 per week.
Among nonprofit executives and managers, men make much more than women in the same occupations.
Women run a majority of organizations with budgets under $1 million, but as budgets grow the ranks of women shrink. At nonprofits with budgets of $50 million or more, only one in six is run by a woman and as a group those women are paid 25 percentage points less than men, according to the 11th annual nonprofit pay study by Guidestar, a project I long ago urged on its founder.
