States With the Largest and Smallest Gender Wage Gap

Payscale’s 2016 Gender Pay Gap Report found that the Northeast is the most equal region in the United States when it comes to the discrepancy between male and female wages. In general,  the nationwide average is that women get paid 76% of what men earn, which translates to 76 cents to the dollar. Here’s how the states rank:

Most Equal:

  • Vermont
  • Maine
  • Rhode Island
  • Montana
  • Nevada

Least Equal:

  • Wyoming
  • Alabama
  • Louisiana
  • Texas
  • Michigan

There’s good news to be gleaned regarding this news, and that’s the fact that the wage gap shrunk in 2016 compared to 2015.
