Comparison of Median Earnings of Men and Women, by Educational Attainment, 1991 to 2018

Today’s EPIGraph focuses on the earning gap between men and women by educational level. Because the data points are numerous, we separated into four charts to keep focus. We will let the graphics speak for themselves (as they often do), as a Swail Letter will provide a more nuanced discussion. The conclusion is simple: earning gaps between men and women have narrowed regardless of degree but remain very large.
