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.

The national gender pay gap is the difference between women’s and men’s average weekly full-time base salary earnings, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings. It is a measure of women’s overall position in the paid workforce and does not compare like roles.

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) figures released today show that the national gender pay gap has again dropped, reaching its lowest point in over 20 years at 14.1%.

The national gender pay gap has reached its lowest level in 20 years at 14.6%. So, this year, Equal Pay Day will be on Friday 31 August, marking the 62 additional days from the end of the previous financial year that women must work to earn the same pay as men.

Today, alongside the launch of WGEA’s fifth year of data, we have also launched a brand new way for you to explore WGEA’s archives of individual employers’ data. The WGEA Data Explorer has been updated and is now a one-stop shop for all public data collected by the Agency.

Late last year, the Australian Government announced that the Workplace Gender Equality Agency would be allocated funds for the re-development of our data reporting system to improve the reporting process.
