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 Tucson. 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 Tucson, the median income for all workers aged 15 years and older, regardless of work hours, was $34,625 for males and $27,352 for females.

    These income figures indicate a substantial gender-based pay disparity, showcasing a gap of approximately 21% between the median incomes of males and females in Tucson. With women, regardless of work hours, earning 79 cents to each dollar earned by men, this income disparity reveals a concerning trend toward wage inequality that demands attention in thecity of Tucson.

  • Full-time workers, aged 15 years and older: In Tucson, among full-time, year-round workers aged 15 years and older, males earned a median income of $48,763, while females earned $45,044, resulting in a 8% gender pay gap among full-time workers. This illustrates that women earn 92 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 Tucson.

    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 Tucson.
