Spokane, WA gender pay gap statistics

In Spokane, the population consists of 112,003 males (49.62%) and 113,706 females (50.38%), a breakdown further detailed in Spokane population by gender.

With a gender ratio of 98.5:100 i.e. 98.5 men to 100 women (0.985), Spokane hosts fewer men than women. This demographic distribution sets the backdrop for our exploration into gender-based income disparities within the area.

Historically, addressing gender-based pay differences has been a pressing concern, prompting substantial efforts not only from government initiatives but also from advocacy groups, businesses, and social movements. To explore this further within the context of Spokane, our analysis will focus on examining the income data to understand the reality of gender-based pay differences.

Here are the key findings from our analysis:

  • All workers, aged 15 years and older: In Spokane, the median income for all workers aged 15 years and older, regardless of work hours, was $40,465 for males and $32,794 for females.

    These income figures indicate a substantial gender-based pay disparity, showcasing a gap of approximately 19% between the median incomes of males and females in Spokane. With women, regardless of work hours, earning 81 cents to each dollar earned by men, this income disparity reveals a concerning trend toward wage inequality that demands attention in thecity of Spokane.

  • Full-time workers, aged 15 years and older: In Spokane, among full-time, year-round workers aged 15 years and older, males earned a median income of $59,595, while females earned $53,325, resulting in a 11% gender pay gap among full-time workers. This illustrates that women earn 89 cents for each dollar earned by men in full-time positions. While this gap shows a trend where women are inching closer to wage parity with men, it also exhibits a noticeable income difference for women working full-time in the city of Spokane.

    Interestingly, when analyzing income across all roles, including non-full-time employment, the gender pay gap percentage was higher for women compared to men. It appears that full-time employment presents a more favorable income scenario for women compared to other employment patterns in Spokane.

To visualize the evolving trend, here is a line chart depicting the changes in gender-specific annual median incomes over time in Spokane, encompassing both full-time and all workers aged 15 years and older.

Spokane, WA gender and employment-based income distribution analysis (Ages 15+)

To gain insights into gender-based income distribution within the Spokane population, we conducted an analysis across 20 distinct brackets for males and females aged 15 years and over, covering both full-time year-round workers and other employment designations.

Within Spokane, among individuals aged 15 years and older with income, there were 89,617 men and 87,586 women in the workforce. Among them, 44,209 men were engaged in full-time, year-round employment, while 34,035 women were in full-time, year-round roles.

Analyzing the percentage of full-time, year-round workers to the total workforce reveals that among men, the proportion of full-time employment was 49.33%, whereas among women, the ratio was 38.86%. This indicates that a higher percentage of men were engaged in full-time, year-round roles compared to women.

The observed disparity may stem from various factors such as industry choices, societal expectations, or employment opportunities, revealing potential gender-based variations in employment trends within Spokane.

Parenthood, for instance, is one such factor influencing these trends. Women between 25 and 44 years old who are mothers are less inclined to participate in the workforce compared to women of the same age without children at home. Furthermore, when employed, these mothers often work fewer hours per week, adding to the observed disparities in full-time employment between genders.

To provide a more comprehensive understanding of income distribution, we have grouped the original income brackets into five broader categories for analysis purposes: Under $24,999, $25,000 to $49,999, $50,000 to $74,999, $75,000 to $99,999, and above $100,000. This grouping allows for a more focused assessment of income disparities across distinct income ranges, offering clearer insights into gender-based income distributions within the Spokane population.

The analysis unveiled the following key findings:

  • Annual income under $24,999: Of the male population working full-time, 5.90% fell within the income range of under $24,999, while 6.07% of the female population working full-time was represented in the same income bracket. Additionally, among individuals in other non-full-time employment categories, 54.54% of males and 59.98% of females were found within this income range.

    In total, among the population aged 15 years and older with income, across all employment categories, the analysis revealed that 30.54% of the entire male population and 39.03% of the entire female population fell within the income bracket of under $24,999.

    A higher percentage of females compared to males falling within the under $24,999 income bucket suggests a potential disparity, indicating a greater concentration of women in this lower income range.

  • Annual income between $25,000 and $49,999: 33.71% of males in full-time employment were within the $25,000 to $49,999 income range, while 39.93% of females in full-time roles were represented in this income bracket. Moreover, among other employment categories, 24.79% of males and 24.10% of females fell into this income range.

    Considering the population aged 15 years and older with income across all employments, 29.19% of the total male population and 30.25% of the total female population were encompassed within this income bracket.

    The higher representation of females compared to males in the $25,000 to $49,999 income bracket indicates a potential inequality, emphasizing a greater prevalence of women within this lower-middle income range.

  • Annual income between $50,000 and $74,999: 25.77% of men in full-time employment fell within the $50,000 to $74,999 income bracket, while 25.71% of women in full-time positions were also within this income range. Furthermore, among individuals in other non-full-time employment categories, 12.82% of men and 9.91% of women were situated within this specific income bracket.

    Overall, considering the entire population aged 15 years and older with income across all job types, 19.21% of the total male population and 16.05% of the total female population were found within the $50,000 to $74,999 income bracket.

    The higher proportion of males compared to females in the $50,000 to $74,999 income bracket suggests a potential inequality, emphasizing a greater prevalence of men within this middle-income range.

  • Annual income between $75,000 and $99,999: 13.90% of men in full-time roles occupied the $75,000 to $99,999 income bracket, while 13.57% of women in full-time positions shared this income range. Additionally, among individuals in other non-full-time employment categories, 2.98% of men and 3.66% of women were situated within this specific income bracket.

    In total, among the entire population aged 15 years and older with income across all job types, 8.37% of the total male population and 7.51% of the total female population fell within the $75,000 to $99,999 income bracket.

    The elevated ratio of males to females in the $75,000 to $99,999 income bracket hints at a potential inequality, underscoring a stronger predominance of men within this upper-middle income range.

  • Annual income above $100,000: 20.72% of men in full-time roles earned incomes exceeding $100,000, while 14.72% of women in full-time positions earned within this income bracket. Additionally, among those in alternative non-full-time employment, 4.87% of men and 2.36% of women earned within this income bracket.

    In total, across the entire population aged 15 years and older with income across all job types, 12.69% of the total male population and 7.16% of the total female population earned incomes above $100,000.

    The increased proportion of males compared to females in the above $100,000 income bracket suggests a potential inequality, emphasizing a greater predominance of men in this higher income range.
