Gender Earnings Gaps in Ethnic and Religious Groups in Israel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In spite of the increase of women’s educational achievements and their intrusion into lucrative jobs, a female-male pay gap still persists in almost all nations,1 but its size varies greatly across countries. According to OECD statistics, gender pay gaps are largest in Asian countries (Japan, 26.6 percent; Korea, 36.6 percent) and smallest in New Zealand (5.6 percent), Belgium (6.4 percent), and Norway (7.0 percent); the OECD average has continued to go down from 18.2 percent in 2000 to 15.3 a decade later (OECD 2015).2
