About this dataset


The dataset presents median income data over a decade or more for males and females categorized by Total, Full-Time Year-Round (FT), and Part-Time (PT) employment in Placer County. It showcases annual income, providing insights into gender-specific income distributions and the disparities between full-time and part-time work. The dataset can be utilized to gain insights into gender-based pay disparity trends and explore the variations in income for male and female individuals.

Key observations: Insights from 2022

Based on our analysis ACS 2022 1-Year Estimates, we present the following observations:

  • All workers, aged 15 years and older: In Placer County, the median income for all workers aged 15 years and older, regardless of work hours, was $63,190 for males and $38,417 for females.

    These income figures highlight a substantial gender-based income gap in Placer County. Women, regardless of work hours, earn 61 cents for each dollar earned by men. This significant gender pay gap, approximately 39%, underscores concerning gender-based income inequality in the county of Placer County.

  • Full-time workers, aged 15 years and older: In Placer County, among full-time, year-round workers aged 15 years and older, males earned a median income of $91,923, while females earned $74,907, leading to a 19% gender pay gap among full-time workers. This illustrates that women earn 81 cents for each dollar earned by men in full-time roles. This analysis indicates a widening gender pay gap, showing a substantial income disparity where women, despite working full-time, face a more significant wage discrepancy compared to men in the same roles.

    Surprisingly, the gender pay gap percentage was higher across all roles, including non-full-time employment, for women compared to men. This suggests that full-time employment offers a more equitable income scenario for women compared to other employment patterns in Placer County.
