Supplementary notes

The following process was used to calculate the median pay gap "The median hourly rate is calculated by ranking all employees from the highest paid to the lowest paid, and taking the hourly wage of the person in the middle; so the median gender pay gap is the difference between women’s median hourly wage (the middle paid woman) and men’s median hourly wage (the middle paid man)."
Based on median hourly earnings excluding overtime.
2017 figures are Statista estimates.
