The national gender pay gap is calculated by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) using data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Currently, Australia’s national gender pay gap is 14.6%, the lowest level in 20 years. It had previously hovered between 15% and 19% for the past two decades.
